Today’s topics: Catholic Relief Service’s Lenten Rice Bowl
Summary of today’s show: Catholic Relief Services is the international face of the Catholic Church in US in charity work throughout the world, while Catholic Charities Boston has a similar mission in the Archdiocese of Boston. Every Lent, CRS coordinates the Rice Bowl program that helps individuals and organizations practice prayer, fasting and almsgiving by making sacrifices and giving funds to help the needy throughout the world. Twenty-five percent of the money raised in the Archdiocese stays in the Archdiocese to fund programs that help the needy on a local level.
