Catholic Relief Services Rice Bowl
A big thank you to all individuals and families who are currently engaged with the Rice Bowl program this Lent. The Rice Bowl program ends during Holy Week, on Holy Thursday. The Archdiocesan Center for Mission (CRS office in our archdiocese) manages the Rice Bowl program and will forward all collections to Catholic Relief Services. To make it more convenient than sending in those heavy boxes of collected coins, we have provided contribution options below:
1. Submit a check for the amount collected to St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, with the check made out to St. John's and mark "Rice Bowl" in the memo line; we will then send a total collection check to the Center for Mission for Rice Bowl.
2. Mail a check for your collection to Bonnie Curry-Gabel, Center for Mission, 777 Forest Street, St. Paul, MN 55106. Make the check out to the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis and write “Rice Bowl” in the memo line on the check.
4. Or go to
to offer your contribution by credit card via the "Donate" link on the top of the home page.
Thank you for your continued outreach and almsgiving this Lent!
