Ways that you can help:

CRS Rice Bowl – This Lent, CRS Rice Bowl invites you, your family and community to journey alongside the Good Samaritan, to reflect on the question: Who is my neighbor?

So many of our neighbors are on the move: migrants, refugees, internally displaced persons, travelers. The Good Samaritan—a traveler himself, one on the move—shows us what it means to encounter the stranger, to accompany one in need and become a companion on the journey.

Pope Francis has invited Catholics to build bridges of understanding and hospitality with migrants and refugees through “Share the Journey” campaign.
