You’re invited to participate in the CRS Rice Bowl!
The UH Catholic Newman Center will be participating in the CRS Rice Bowl, Catholic Relief Services' Lenten program, as a way to encounter Jesus through others, especially through the most vulnerable in our world. Rice Bowls will be available at the UH Catholic Newman Center. Please be sure to take home a Rice Bowl and use this fun and easy resource to deepen your family’s Lenten experience and make a difference in the lives of the poor. Your prayers, fasting and almsgiving this Lenten season will help Catholic Relief Services continue to provide life~saving assistance in nearly 100 countries. CRS works on our behalf to care for the poorest in our world and to end global poverty.
Thank You for your participation in CRS Rice Bowl! We raised a total of $.00 and the money was sent to the Mission Office of the Archdiocese of Galveston ~ Houston.
By participating, you not only enriched your Lenten journey, but also joined in solidarity and gave concrete assistance to the poorest of the poor in more than 90 countries that benefit through projects in the areas of agriculture, water, microfinance, mother and child health, education and HIV/Aids projects. 75% of your contribution supports these development projects overseas. 25% remains in our Archdiocese of Galveston ~ Houston to fund local hunger and poverty alleviation programs.
