We'll be roasting all day; come when you can. Meat and flatbread will be provided. Appetizers, side-dishes, desserts and drinks will be potluck style, so bring your favorite dish. Hopefully weather will permit outdoor play of all kinds. All are welcome. Bring your friends and family and celebrate this 2nd Sunday of Easter with us.

CRS RICE BOWL
Celebrating its 40th year, CRS Rice Bowl is Catholic Relief Services’ Lenten faith-in-action program for families and faith communities. The program provides a powerful, tangible way for Catholics to answer Jesus’ call to serve the world’s poor and experience Lent as a time of spiritual renewal and sacrifice for those in need. Seventy-five percent of the funds are being used by Catholic Relief Services overseas for development projects in the poorest areas of the world. Twenty-five percent of your donation stays in western Washington as grants to parishes, Catholic Community Services and other organizations to fight hunger in our local communities. Your support of the CRS Rice Bowl program is very much appreciated. Because of you, this archdiocese remains a leader in the U.S. regarding participation in this Lenten program. What your parish gives up for Lent truly can change lives around the world. Thank you for including CRS Rice Bowl as a part of your faith life!
