Kick off the season of Lent

Please join us for the 2020 CRS Rice Bowl kick-off luncheon at Saint Xavier High School on Wednesday, February 12, 2020. We would like you to consider inviting 8 representatives from your school and/or parish to this newly formatted event. Both students and staff will benefit from this program and hopefully will work together to promote the CRS values in their school/parish.

Attendees with learn about Rice Bowl program and its reach both locally and globally, as well as ways local students are supporting refugees and immigrants in our local communities. Participants will be encouraged to interact and brainstorm with each other throughout the event. Refugees and representatives from the immigrant community will also be present. As numbers allow, our guests may join the students.

10:30 am Doors Open for “walk-thru” exhibits. All are invited to participate and learn from others already doing great work in our community.

11:30 am – 1:00 pm Pizza and Program

Keynote Speaker: Thomas Awiapo from CRS Ghana
