Catholic Relief Services Rice Bowl
In 1975, Catholics in the United States wanted to respond to famine in Africa. Could we feed the hungry through Lenten prayers, fasting and almsgiving? The answer was yes—and it came in the form of a small cardboard box. Now, 40 years later, CRS Rice Bowl is your way to help our brothers and sisters in need each Lent. CRS Rice Bowl is Catholic Relief Services’ Lenten faith-in-action program for families and faith communities. Through CRS Rice Bowl, we hear stories from our brothers and sisters in need worldwide, and devote our Lenten prayers, fasting and gifts to change the lives of the poor. Learn more about Lent and CRS Rice Bowl.

We might be familiar with different aspects of the Catholic faith. But how does it all fit together? And what difference does it make for our lives? "Symbolon: The Catholic Faith Explained" opens up the “big picture” of the Catholic faith in a way that helps us know it, live it and articulate it to others.
Symbolon is open to all interested in learning more about the Catholic faith. Join us.
