Put Your Faith into Action During Lent

CRS Rice Bowl is Catholic Relief Services’ program for people who want to put their Lenten commitment to almsgiving into action. Before you leave your meal in the STAC, drop some change into the Rice Bowl at your table. 75% of what we collect will be sent to CRS in support of the global efforts to address disaster relief, hunger, education, and health. 25% of the monies collected go to hunger and poverty programs in our own community. Each year CRS Rice Bowl funds are directed to between 40 and 45 countries where CRS runs humanitarian programs. Now in its 41st year, more than $250 million has been given through CRS Rice Bowl to support programs that prevent hunger and poverty around the world. Of that, $62.5 million went to programs in the U.S. through local dioceses and $187.5 million went to CRS programs overseas.

Why not also place a CRS Rice Bowl in your room for you and your roomates? Sign up to receive one here. For a collection of daily Lenten reflections and activities included in the CRS Rice Bowl calendar and on the mobile app, go here.
