CRS Rice Bowl- a message from Mark Bouchard from Catholic Charities Louisville.
Many have asked us about how to collect Rice Bowls this year as parishes and schools are likely to remain closed through the rest of the Lenten season. Families may turn in their Lenten gifts at:
· English https://support.crs.org/donate/change-life-lent-0
· Spanish https://support.crs.org/donate/cambia-una-vida-esta-cuaresma
Remember – CRS Rice Bowl supports hunger and poverty alleviation efforts both around the world through CRS (75% of gifts) and also here in the U.S. (25% for local diocesan efforts). This global/local connection is important as communities in the US and around the world are both struggling with the economic impacts of COVID-19.
· The CRS Bi-lingual Facebook Group offers a virtual community space where people can share about their Lenten journeys and see examples of how others are maintaining Lenten spirituality during social distancing.
