Our diocese and Catholic Relief Services sends their thanks to all who participated in the Rice Bowl program this past Lent. You may recall that the lockdown prevented us from collecting the small banks during Faith Formation classes. Many families returned the banks in May after we returned to Mass and we forwarded just over $86 to the diocese marked for CRS. If you still have yours at home CRS wants you to know that your donations are so much needed at this difficult time. Please send any remaining Rice Bowl 2020 donations directly to CRS and include the name of your parish and diocese. Remember our diocese receives 25% of all funds collected and utilizes that money for local anti-poverty grants.
