CRS Rice Bowl | Promoting Lenten Solidarity with Poor
Each day during Lent, we have the opportunity to be inspired by the stories of communities from around the world, to set aside a little of ourselves to make room for a stranger. This Lent, CRS Rice Bowl reminds us that the journey through the desert ultimately leads to resurrection—and that it is our Gospel call to stand with courage, bringing the hope of the Resurrection to a world often beset by hopelessness.
The Diocese of Green Bay and Catholic Relief Services co-sponsor CRS Rice Bowl. Catholic Relief Services is the international humanitarian arm of the U.S. Catholic Church.
