The parish is specifically looking to collect monetary donations to purchase sleeping bags rated for sub-zero temperatures.

Since its inception in 1990, churches across America have raised more than $100 million for soup kitchens, food pantries and other charities through the Souper Bowl of Caring. Other parishes in the Diocese of Portland also participated in the event last weekend.
