3.         Catholic Relief Services and the Office of Life, Justice, and Peace:  CRS Rice Bowl During Lent

The Archdiocese of Los Angeles actively supports CRS Rice Bowl, a Lenten program sponsored by Catholic Relief Services (CRS), the U.S. Catholic Church's international emergency and hunger relief agency.  CRS Rice Bowl's Lenten Program is conducted in Catholic parishes and schools throughout the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and across the country.  Although primarily a family faith formation and global solidarity initiative, funds raised go directly to address hunger and poverty needs internationally and locally.  Seventy-five percent of funds raised are used for CRS' international hunger relief efforts.  Twenty-five percent are distributed in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles to meet basic needs that address hunger and poverty locally.  (Local agencies that would like to apply for a CRS grant can do so through Jaime Huerta of the Office of Life, Justice, and Peace.  His contact information is below.)

Individuals, parishes, and schools are invited to join the 40-year transformational Lenten tradition of putting faith into action.  Their prayers, efforts to learn about global poverty, and financial contributions better the lives of people abroad living in poverty through:

Water and sanitation projects
Mother and child health programs
Agricultural support to improve harvests
Educational resources
Micro-finance loans for small business

Educational materials and instructional and informational videos are available at:

http://www.crsricebowl.org

One of the Lenten videos was made by Abp. José H. Gomez, along with other videos with other prominent Catholics.  Access them all at:

http://www.crsricebowl.org/what-is-lent/

Locally, the Global Solidarity Action Team of the Office of Life, Justice and Peace will support your parish or school Rice Bowl program with training and resources.  To request such assistance, direction, and resources, please access:

4.         Parishioners Federal Credit Union:  Offerings for Members of Catholic Institutions

In 1961, Msgr. James O'Gorman, pastor of St. James Parish in Redondo Beach, founded Parishioners Federal Credit Union.  In the intervening 50+ years, it has grown to be the largest Catholic-affiliated credit union in the State of California.  It offers loans for new and used cars, mortgages, home equity lines of credit, signature loans, checking accounts, savings accounts, and more.  It has special offerings for children, including drawings for an iPod Shuffle for good report card grades, savings accounts, and first checking accounts for teenagers.  All parishioners in the San Pedro Pastoral Region are eligible to join, along with all teachers at parochial elementary schools throughout the Archdiocese.  People associated with other select Catholic organizations (such as Bishop Montgomery High School in Torrance and Catholic Charities) are also eligible to join.  Please note, while serving people affiliated with Catholic institutions, Parishioners Federal Credit Union is not run by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles nor is it controlled by the Catholic Church.  It is governed by the National Credit Union Administration and has to follow its strict financial guidelines.  Currently, and through the end of April, it is offering its "Feel the Love" campaign, offering personal loans with rates as low as 6.75% annual percentage rate.

5.         Office of Restorative Justice:  March is Juvenile Justice Month of Faith and Healing

The Office of Restorative Justice is one of the endorsing organizations for March as the Juvenile Justice Month of Faith and Healing.  This is an annual event that unites congregations of all faith traditions, high schools, and universities in California to raise awareness of individual, community, and social needs arising from the current juvenile justice system.  The month is a time for people to open their hearts and minds through prayer, education, service, and advocacy.  The events through the month will initiate a dialogue between offenders, victims, and the community regarding the causes of crime and will suggest structures needed to prevent youth from becoming engaged in the cycle of violence.  The long-term goal of Juvenile Justice Month of Faith and Healing is to offer young offenders hope and alternatives to a lifetime as a hardened criminal, while society implements more fully the principles of restorative justice.
