The Diocese of Duluth Office of Social Apostolate announces that applications are being welcomed for our annual CRS Rice Bowl Small Grant Fund.

Please click below for information on funding criteria and the application. Applications are due on Friday, May 20, 2016.
Revenue for this effort is gathered through the Lenten sacrifices of parishioners in the Diocese of Duluth. Each Lent, Catholic Relief Services distributes small cardboard rice bowls for individuals and families to use in their almsgiving efforts. When these rice bowls are turned it, 75% of those proceeds are sent to Catholic Relief Services for their work overseas, and 25% stays in the Diocese of Duluth to address hunger and poverty right here.
