For 42 years, Catholics throughout the Archdiocese of Philadelphia have been using CRS Rice Bowl as a Lenten sacrifice of prayer, simple meals and donations. The program of Catholic Relief Services raises awareness of the hungers of people around the world, and 25 percent of funds stays in the local area through archdiocesan Nutritional Development Services, which supports the food cupboard at St. Ignatius Parish in West Philadelphia. That is where Bishop John McIntyre led a prayer service Feb. 2 to kick off this year’s campaign. Read all about the event and details of Rice Bowl, here. (Photos by Matthew Gambino)
