  • Ideas for Almsgiving this Lent

    CRS Rice Bowl

    Looking for ways to inspire and accompany youth as they live out their faith in the spirit of encounter?

    Lent is a time to encounter, to cultivate a spirit of global solidarity. And, CRS Rice Bowl is your guide, a vehicle through which the stories of communities around the world can be shared, and an opportunity to encounter ourselves and God anew.

    For interactive activities, prayers and videos to build community among your youth and solidarity with our one human family, utilize our Reflexiones para la Pastoral Juvenil Hispana and Youth in Solidarity Reflections guide. Encounter Lent with your youth at   crsricebowl.org/youth   crsplatodearroz.org/jovenes  

    You may have heard of Missio.org, a wonderful, easy to use tool to directly connect you and your ministry to missionaries in Africa, Asia, the Pacific Islands and Latin America.

    Please consider adopting and fundraising for one of our approved projects with your group this Lenten Season, deepening their connection as missionary disciples. 

    There are many projects to choose from here: https://missio.org/choose
