This Lent, The Basilica’s SVdP Ministry is partnering with Catholic Relief Services (CRS) to support Lenten Rice Bowls. We invite all parishioners to join nearly 14,000 Catholic communities across the U.S. in a life changing Lenten Journey. Families with children enrolled in Basilica classes will receive information about participating during their weekly class. And all parishioners are invited to pick up a Rice Bowl at the back of church beginning on Ash Wednesday. Each Rice Bowl kit includes information about this program, a calendar, and recipes. Watch for additional details about The Basilica’s CRS Rice Bowl participation throughout Lent. May these 40 days better prepare us to encounter ourselves, our neighbors, an our God.
