The first Soup Supper after Assumption’s Stations of the Cross last Friday featured delicious Clam Chowder and Tuscan Tomato Bisque soups and a sample of one of the CRS Rice Bowl recipies, Frijoles Volteados, from Guatemala. This simple, meatless black bean dish was prepared using CRS Fair Trade olive oil and was a big hit. Participants learned how each week of Lent, Rice Bowl invites us to enter into solidarity with the people of a different place around the globe by praying for and learning about these people and how they are being helped by CRS programs. If you haven’t picked up a Rice Bowl yet, you are encouraged to do so as it is much more than a place to collect your almsgiving, it also includes these stories of hope and a calendar with daily reflections and a suggested meatless recipe for each Friday which corresponds to the country of the week. There are even more resources available online at (crsricebowl.org) to learn more about these countries, featured examples of the Saints, more in-depth reflections, and related versions of prayers such as Stations of the Cross and The Seven Sorrows of Mary.
Assumption Parish, 6:00 PM on March 7, 21, 28, April 4, and 11.
