Operation Rice Bowl - A Lenten Journey Opportunity

  • Feb 12, 2018

Please remember to join our faith community and nearly 14,000 Catholic communities across the United States in the Lenten faith in action Catholic Relief Services “Operation Rice Bowl” program. “RICE BOWLS“ are still available in church entrances. This program offers participants opportunities to engage daily in the spiritual pillars of Lent: prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. Parishioners are invited to reflect on our brother and sisters and help us see our role in caring for the most vulnerable. A brochure is attached inside of each small cardboard bowl providing instructions, suggestions, prayers, and a Lenten calendar.

For more information or to have a “Rice Bowl” mailed, please contact Patricia Kavanaugh in the Social Concerns Office at 202.449.3987 or .
