2017 CRS Rice Bowl Grant Awards
September 30, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Please join us for the 2017 CRS Rice Bowl Grant Award Ceremony!
On behalf of the Global Solidarity Team of the Diocese of San Jose, we would like to invite you to a special awards ceremony to honor the recipients of the 2017 CRS Rice Bowl Grants Program. Please extend this special invitation to your pastors, principals, faculty, staff, and entire parish and school communities.
CRS Rice Bowl is Catholic Relief Services’ Lenten faith-in-action program for families and faith communities. Through CRS Rice Bowl, we hear stories from our brothers and sisters in need worldwide, and devote our Lenten prayers, fasting and gifts to change the lives of the poor.
Seventy-five percent of the CRS Rice Bowl funds raised are used for international development and twenty-five percent are available to be distributed locally for hunger alleviation programs. This year we will be awarding $41,000 using the 25% of CRS Rice Bowl funds that we received during Lent 2017.
We will be awarding CRS Rice Bowl Fund grants to 28 applicants in our diocese to support their local outreach programs.
Information will also be provided on how you can apply for future grants for your parish and school programs.
When: Saturday, September 30, 2017 at 3:00 p.m., followed by mass at 5:00 p.m.
Where: St. Martin of Tours Parish, 200 O’Connor Dr., San Jose, CA 95128
