“Souper” Bowl Sunday


Participants in the Family Faith Formation program at St. Mary of the Assumption Parish, Lancaster, organized a “Souper Bowl Weekend” drive, collecting cans of soup and monetary donations to benefit area food pantries and others in need. In addition to a generous supply of canned soup, a total of $1,258 was raised, with collections held following all Masses at St. Mary’s on Saturday, February 2 and Sunday, February 3. Benefiting from the proceeds will be the Sister Mary Josette Food Pantry, Cheektowaga; the Trinity Episcopal Church Food Pantry, Lancaster; and Gerard Place and the Response to Love Center, Buffalo, along with other community members in need of assistance. Thank you to all who participated!
