CRS Rice Bowl 2021-

Catholic Relief Services (CRS), through our Rice Bowl alms, helps brothers and sisters in-need around the world, especially in these challenging times. Thank you for your many sacrifices during Lent. Through your generosity, $3,405 was collected from St. Paul’s parishioners. Through these alms given to Catholic Relief Services, we become a blessing for others. What we gave up for Lent will change lives!


· 75% of our CRS Rice Bowl alms support Catholic Relief Services development projects overseas carried out on behalf of the U.S. Catholic community (us!).

· 25% of the CRS Rice Bowl alms remain in our Diocese to help support local hunger relief efforts.

If you don’t have a CRS Rice Bowl, print the DIY Rice Bowl label and adhere it to a container.
