A simple prayer: “Lord, even as we enjoy the Super Bowl football game, help us be mindful of those who are without a bowl of soup to eat” is inspiring a movement to help hungry and hurting people around the world. This prayer, delivered by Brad Smith, a seminary intern in Columbia, SC, gave birth to an idea. Why not use Super Bowl weekend, a time when people come together for football and fun, to also unify the nation for a higher good: collecting dollars and canned food for the needy? A lot of money is spent on snack foods for Super Bowl Sunday, but there a many people who go hungry. In the early 1990’s, churches began collecting canned goods wrapped with a dollar, or holding fundraisers to collect money to feed the hungry. Our Family Life Committee has decided to hold a spaghetti dinner on the Saturday, February 1, of Super Bowl weekend with all money raised going to Sts. Peter and Paul Parish in Haiti. We are looking for help cooking a Del Grosso’s spaghetti dinner and donations of salad and baked goods to serve with the spaghetti . And, of course, we need help selling tickets and spreading the word. Tickets will be $6.00 if purchased before January 5 and $7.00 if purchased after January 5. Both eat-in and take-out will be available.
