  • Devotions, like the Stations of the Cross, and prayers.
  • Lesson plans, videos and activity sheets for Catholic school teachers and religious educators.
  • Ideas for in-person or virtual community gatherings and simple Lenten meal events.

Mahalo for inviting families in your faith community to join us on an enriched season through CRS Rice Bowl. Together, we can respond to Christ’s call to help those in need and ensure everyone reaches his or her God-given potential.
