Tomorrow at mass, Student Council will collect donations for the Catholic Relief Services' Lenten Rice Bowl program. (Students will be able to drop their donations in collection baskets as they walk into church.)
75% of the funds donated here at Holy Trinity will be used around the world to assist Catholic Relief Services in the work they do in over 100 different countries on 5 continents. Catholic Relief Services is the international humanitarian relief and development agency for the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops. They assist people in getting food, clean water, and basic health care needs, as well as provide education and job training. They also assist with emergencies and natural disasters. CRS helps immigrants and refugees, too.
25% of the funds donated here will stay in Kentucky and Catholic Charities of Louisville will use the money to support food projects for those in need throughout the state.
We hope that everyone will consider donating to our all-school Lenten service-learning program and bring in money after Spring Break. If you have coins in your Rice Bowls currently, please work with your parents to count the money and bring in cash or have your parents write a check. Checks should be made out to Holy Trinity with CRS Rice Bowl in the memo line. Families can also donate online on the parish website. All donations should be submitted by Friday, April 15 to help us determine if we reach our $6,000 goal and earn a spirit day on Wednesday, April 27.
Thank you for your support of Rice Bowl, an all-school Lenten almsgiving effort and service project!
