Be part of a movement that is sharing God’s love with those in need. Please give generously in church on Super Bowl Sunday – February 2nd.
For the 13th year in a row, our parish is participating in the Souper Bowl of Caring. Through the Souper Bowl of Caring we are providing food help for those in need in our local community. We ask for your support and deeply appreciate your generosity!
Your monetary and food donations in church will support the work of Schenectady Inner City Ministry.
Scripture asks us to be attentive to the needs of others.
- For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in. — Matthew 25:35
- John answered, “The man with two tunics should share with him who has none, and the one who has food should do the same.” — Luke 3:11
- If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? — 1 John 3:17
Listening to the voice of the Lord, more than 20 years ago the Souper Bowl of Caring began with a simple prayer from a single youth group:
“Lord, even as we enjoy the SuperBowl football game, help us be mindful of those without a bowl of soup to eat.”
In 2013 more than 7,000 groups participated in Souper Bowl of Caring, collecting more than $7.3 million in dollars and food for local hunger-relief charities. Since 1990, more than $97 million has been collected for hunger-relief charities across the country. Souper Bowl Sunday has become a powerful movement that is transforming the time around SuperBowl weekend into the nation’s largest celebration of giving and serving.
