Almsgiving During Lent: Operation Rice Bowl
Operation Rice Bowl is a simple way to experience Lenten prayer, fasting and almsgiving and provide great assistance to many people in need through the work of Catholic Relief Services. Seventy-five percent of the contributions to Operation Rice Bowl support development projects overseas and Lenten education activities in the United States.
Take one of the rice bowls available in the vestibule and at the doors of the church. Place it in a conspicuous location in your home or at work where it will remind you of your commitment to pray and give alms for others around the world in need. Bring your rice bowl to Mass on Palm Sunday.
