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.
