St. John’s Ancaster kicked off their Souper Bowl Sunday on the same day citizens of the United States were celebrating Super Bowl Sunday.

The parish’s Social Justice Action Group sponsored a campaign, called Souper Bowl Sunday, with a goal to collect 1,000 cans of soup by February 5.

Parishioners threw many touchdowns to exceed expectations.

At the end of the game, wrote Mary Mellish, “1,510 cans of soup were packed up and delivered to St. Matthew’s House in Hamilton.”
