Bowls are available at each entrance of the church during Lent.

Our parish participates in the Catholic Relief Services’ (CRS) Operation Rice Bowl during Lent each year.  Its goal is to alleviate hunger in the world. At the beginning of Lent, each family is encouraged to take a small cardboard “rice bowl” to remind us that our offerings and self-denial can help others in the world.  At the end of Lent, contributions are brought to church, gathered and sent to CRS.
