Prep Community raises funds for Catholic Relief Services' Rice Bowl!
The Fairfield Prep school community participated yet again this past Lenten Season in Catholic Relief Services’ (CRS) Operation Rice Bowl Program. Operation Rice Bowl raises money in support of CRS’ programs to alleviate hunger and poverty amidst the most distressed communities in our nation and in our world. This year was the seventh year in a row that Fairfield Prep has participated in the program, which encourages participants to “Pray, Fast and Give.”
Mr. Griffin Reidy’s Theology classes took this program to a new level by engaging in some friendly competition for this good cause. Mr. Reidy’s classes raised nearly $1000, and his top class alone raised over $300. As a school, Fairfield Prep collected a total of nearly $2500 for CRS. Way to Go Prep!
