CRS is the international humanitarian agency of the Catholic community. Syracuse CRS promotes solidarity relationships between local parishes and people living in dire poverty in developing countries.
Local communities play a key role in overseas work by responding to natural disasters, civil conflicts and ongoing programs of self-sustainability. Operation Rice Bowl and the CRS's second collection during Lent are key funding sources for both local and national services.
