Super Bowl Sunday

02-07-2016Fr. John Barry

I thank our volunteers in the parish, and we had a breakfast for many of them yesterday, thanks to the Knights of Columbus loaning us their hall.

Today is the famous Super Bowl day in America, with the Carolina Panthers playing the Denver Broncos out in California. I have become familiar with some fine practicing Catholic players on the Carolina team – so I will favor them. Plus the Panthers are only in their second time in the big game – so I'd like to see them get their first Super Bowl trophy (they missed out in 2004 to the Patriots). Most people can't remember that 2004 game well, but for only a wardrobe malfunction in the half-time show! They remember that!

This Wednesday is the start of Lent, with Masses at 8:45am, 4:30pm and 7:30pm. I am also leading the SPX School Mass at 10:30am. Our Lenten schedule is the insert today, while it also is on our webpage (St. Edward's Bowie).
