CRS Rice Bowl marks 40th year

February 27, 2015
Catholic Relief Services

Celebrating its 40th year, CRS Rice Bowl is Catholic Relief Services’ Lenten program for families and faith communities in the United States who want to put their faith into action. Participants are invited to hear stories about their brothers and sisters in need around the world, and devote their Lenten prayers, fasting and alms to change the lives of those who suffer in poverty. Participants journey through the 40 days of Lent with a collection of daily reflections and activities included in the CRS Rice Bowl calendar and on the mobile app.

A cardboard or homemade CRS Rice Bowl is a tool for collecting your Lenten alms. Rice Bowls can be ordered in quantities of 25 from crsricebowl.org or 1 (800) 222-0025 for free. The CRS Rice Bowl app also allows you to create a virtual Rice Bowl on a mobile device. The app is available for both Android and Apple devices.

Dioceses, parishes and schools around the country order Catholic Relief Services Rice Bowls and Lenten calendars for their communities. Check with your parish or school to find out when CRS Rice Bowls will be distributed.

Individuals who are not associated with a Catholic parish or school can download a Rice Bowl template to make their own Rice Bowl.
