CRS Rice Bowl



Through CRS Rice Bowl, we share the journey with members of our human family around the world, and commit our Lenten prayers, fasting and almsgiving to deepening our faith and serving those in need! Join with parishioners around the country who are growing closer to Jesus through praying, fasting, learning and giving this Lent!
