For Lent for Life 2021 – Week #1

Live “Lent for Life” at Home

Each Lent, Catholics around the world put their faith into action through traditional Lenten practices of prayer, fasting and almsgiving. Catholic Relief Services Rice Bowl makes it easy and convenient to do all the above by sharing Stories of Hope from our brothers and sisters around the world and providing online opportunities to help other families in need.

CRS Rice Bowl donation boxes are also available for pickup at your local parish. But families who are staying “safer at home” also have the option to just click on this link and print their own labels to tape to a collection bowl at home.

Catholic Relief Services provides all that is needed for your Domestic Church to practice global solidarity for Lent journeying with families in Madagascar, El Salvador and Timor-Leste.  For more Lenten activities to do with your family, visit the CRS website. Or click on the resources below.

For more information or to have a Rice Bowl and calendar mailed to your home, email the Office for Social Ministry at
