 CRS Rice Bowl Resources 2018

For more than 40 years, Catholics have taken their Lenten journey in solidarity with the poor through CRS Rice Bowl. This year, we’ll encounter our neighbors from around the world—including families from Iraq, Nicaragua, Burkina Faso, Haiti and Malawi—and support them in our Lenten sacrifice of prayer, fasting and almsgiving.

Companions on the Journey this Lent

One of the people we will meet is Majd. After his family fled for their lives from ISIS in Iraq, Majd was able to continue his schooling, his mother has become a teacher, and there is hope where before there was only fear. Read his story. Watch his video.
This Lent, together, we will encounter today’s migrants and refugees—and make their journeys our own.
