Souper Bowl of Caring

Jack and Jill - South Belt Houston - Souper Bowl of Caring - YouGiveGoods

More than 25 years ago, the Souper Bowl of Caring began with a simple prayer from a single youth group: “Lord, even as we enjoy the Super Bowl football game, help us be mindful of those without a bowl of soup to eat.” Each year, much is made of the upcoming Super Bowl football game, which takes place this year on February 13. The young people of St. Edmond Religious Education Program want to use this energy to mobilize and care for the people in our community who may be hungry or in need.

On the weekend of February 12 & 13, young people from our parish will be standing at the entrances of church before Mass to collect your donation of cans of hearty soups and stews and other meal items, as well as accepting monetary donations. All of these items will be given to St. Edmond’s St. Vincent dePaul Society for their outreach to the poor right here in our area. Once again, we will TACKLE HUNGER and make a real difference in our community working together, one by one. Thank you for your help!

Attention: Please be Aware of this Scam!

Please be wary of scams where people claim to be Fr. Cocco and ask for money or gift cards. They create emails that are similar to the 'official' St. Edmond email, and sometimes send texts as well. We NEVER use texts to request things and although we sometimes send emails to collect for various ministries, we NEVER ask for a credit card over the phone or online as we do not sell gift cards in the office. If gift cards are needed (as they sometimes are at Christmas time) we ask you bring them to us. Unfortunately, in our world today, there are people who continue to commit fraud and cheat good honest people who are trying to do the right thing. If there's ever a question, don't hesitate to call the office first before you buy. We're sorry that we can't stop people from doing this but want to make sure you're aware that it is happening again.
