Operation Rice Bowl

 Operation Rice Bowl

  

  
Operation Rice Bowl is the official Lenten Program of Catholic Relief Services. For 33 years, Operation Rice Bowl has called participants to

  

  • pray with their families and faith communities;
  • fast in solidarity with those who hunger;
  • learn about our global community and the challenges of poverty overseas, and give sacrificial contributions to those in need.

  
Parishes throughout the Diocese of Rochester support hungry people abroad as well as in their own communities through their participation in Operation Rice Bowl. To find out how your parish can participate, contact Diocesan Coordinator Kathy Dubel, (617) 734-9784 x135.
