Each Lent, nearly 13,000 faith communities across the United States participate to demonstrate solidarity with the poor around the world. Seventy-five percent of Operation Rice Bowl donations come to CRS to help fund development programs designed to increase food security around the world. Twenty-five percent of the donations support hunger and poverty alleviation efforts in dioceses within the United States.
Next Weekend, Palm Sunday, we will place a basket in front of the Altar for your Operation Rice Bowls (or any contribution you would like to make towards Operation Rice Bowl). Please bring them to Mass with you & they will be received with the gifts during the Offertory.
