CRS Rice Bowl: Stories of Hope – From Farming to Fishing

CRS Rice Bowl’s Stories of Hope takes us to the Philippines this week. Raul and Rhodora were coconut farmers in their town in the Philippines, but it took a lot of work before they made money. They participated in a Catholic Relief Services program that helped them build their own fishpond to raise and sell fish. The fish provide nutritious food for their family and more accessible income, enabling Raul and Rhodora’s granddaughters to attend school. What changes have you made in your professional, personal or spiritual life that have benefited others? The Lenten journey allows us the opportunity to pray, reflect and grow closer to God.
