Souper Bowl of Caring

The countdown is on! Super Bowl Sunday falls on February 5th this year. Last year the FBI Youth Ministry participated in the Souper Bowl of Caring fundraiser and, thanks to your generosity, they raised $461.71 to support the Open Pantry. Once again, the FBI Youth Ministry kids will be present, with soup pots in hand, following all Masses on the weekend of February 4th & 5th to accept your generous donations for this worthy cause. The need is greater than ever this year. This is just a reminder that there’s still time to get in shape, dust off your uniforms and join the team to help tackle hunger in our community.
