Catholic Relief Services - Pope Francis, Rice Bowl Update and More


We’re building a wonderful partnership with our friends at Catholic Relief Services and are happy to spread the news about their great work being done around the world. We’ll be regularly sharing information and stories from both the FaithWorks section of CRS and their other initiatives as well. This week, I want to point you to the following stories that are sure to inspire:
