CRS Rice Bowl
During Lent, our community participates in CRS Rice Bowl, a faith-in-action program that invites us to reflect on the challenges of global hunger - and our responsibility to respond to the needs of our global human family. We will collect your CRS Rice Bowl at the end of Lent
This project is a special collection, during May, of maternity clothing and baby layette items for the Healthy Moms & Babes, Pregnancy Center East, San Carlos Borromeo, and A Caring Place ministries. These organizations offer support and help so pregnant women can carry their babies to term. This collection has grown significantly over the past few years but there is a great need in the Cincinnati area for baby and maternity items. Please be a generous steward and reach out to these women and their newborns. In addition to the collection each year, we also give out Baby Bottles that are returned with cash donations. The Baby Bottles donations are rotated among A Caring Place, Healthy Moms and Babes and Pregnancy Center East.
