OPERATION RICE BOWL
Hungering for seeds of Home
We follow Jesus his week on our Lenten journey as he enters into Jerusalem, a community he knew well. CRS Rice Bowl asks us, too, to prayerfully enter into our own communities, to find those who are hungry and thirsty, who need our help. How does our Lenten journey motivate us to serve those we encounter in our daily lives?
Thank you for remembering the poor throughout the world this Lenten season. Please remember to bring your Operation Rice Bowl contributions to church during Holy Week.

STEWARDSHIP THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
"If anyone would serve me," says Jesus in today's Gospel, "let him follow me; where I am, there will my servant be." In what ways is Jesus inviting me to follow Him? What service is He asking of me?
