The Year of Faith is a "summons to an authentic and renewed conversion to the Lord, the One Savior of the word" (Porta Fidei 6).

During this Year of Faith, we as Catholics are invited to experience a conversion back to God and to develop a deeper relationship with Christ. Catholic Relief Service's Rice Bowl program encourages prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. To get a Rice Bowl, stop by Campus Ministry or pick one up after Mass on Sunday. Rice Bowls are used to collect your Lenten alms. With Rice Bowl, your donations and your prayers can help people suffering from hunger and poverty all around the world.
