    Rice Bowl Project Feeds the Hungry at Home and Away

    So many of us feel powerless to address the obscene poverty that affects two-thirds of the world’s population, over 35,000 children die every day for reasons that stem directly from their poverty, the cry for definitive action is deafening.  Locally, the economy is adding unwanted stress to low-income families.  The need for food assistance is also growing as the cuts to public assistance, food stamps, unemployment and underemployment continue to make a damaging impact on families.  Food pantries across the Archdiocese have experienced a rise in families who need food.

    Operation Rice Bowl: Hope for Haiti

    A year after the earthquake, Haiti still needs our prayers and support.  Millions have been displaced and still suffer due to the stresses of living in temporary conditions, many without livelihoods.  As we begin the Lenten season, Haiti is the one of the featured countries for Operation Rice Bowl. Catholic Relief Services has created a comprehensive program for helping the Haitians rebuild their country, including the most basic infrastructure, many are working side by side with Catholic Relief Services to create a better life.  Consider a gift of hope to Haiti and choose a way to supply a basic need or service to our neighbors in Haiti.  You can purchase shares to help the people of Haiti
