CRS Rice Bowl: Third Week of Lent

Catholic social teaching inspires and guides how we are to live and work in the world. In this principle, Call to Family, Community and Participation, we remember that human beings are social by nature -we need each other. We, like the early disciples, are called to come together and grow as a community-whether that community is in our classroom, workplace or family.
