    CRS RICE BOWL: This longstanding Catholic Relief Services Lenten program takes place in dioceses around the country March 14-April 1. In a letter circulated to parishes and schools, Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone said the Rice Bowl effort helps us connect “with our brothers and sisters in need around the world.” In addition, CRS Rice Bowl provides a unique opportunity to connect with the global migration campaign, “Share the Journey,” launched by Pope Francis and the church last fall, the archbishop said. Participants journey through the 40 days of Lent with a collection of daily reflections and activities included in the Rice Bowl calendar and on the mobile app. Rice Bowl provides funding for CRS food security projects which support agriculture, nutrition, education, and self-sufficiency in communities worldwide with 75 percent of the donations remitted to CRS for overseas projects and 25 percent retained in the diocese for local anti-poverty programs.
