CRS Rice Bowl – A Lenten Journey Coming to An End (Updated March 20) – St. Elizabeth of The Trinity


Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week.

As we walk with Jesus this week, we remember the countless women, children, and men who carry heavy crosses even today: crosses of hunger, of vulnerability to climate change, or of a lack of resources.

How – like Simon of Cyrene – can you help to carry the crosses of our sisters and brothers in your local community and around the world?

You can return your Lenten Rice Bowl almsgiving beginning next weekend.

You can put your donation in any envelope and leave in the special basket near the baptismal pool.
