Bring Lent to Life at Home
Enrich your family’s Lenten experience with stories, prayers, meatless recipes and more.
Rooted in the history of the Eucharistic Congress, CRS Rice Bowl invites Catholic families in the United States to encounter God and our global family throughout Lent by practicing the pillars of prayer, fasting and almsgiving. As you and your family experience deeper communion with the Eucharist during this sacred season, may this encounter with the Bread of Life lead you to share bread for life with our sisters and brothers most in need around the world.
Be sure to share your Lenten journey with us on social media by using #CRSRiceBowl.
- If you don’t have a CRS Rice Bowl, print the DIY Rice Bowl label and adhere it to a container.
