In a video message prior to Super Bowl LII, Archbishop Bernard Hebda of the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis, Minnesota welcomed to his city the hundreds of football fans who will be in town for the game this weekend.

“The weather here can get a little chilly here this time of year, but as a transplant myself, I can tell you that the people and the hospitality here are warm and inviting,” he said. “My prayer for this special weekend is that…all guests have a safe and fun visit.”


He also invited visitors to stop by the Archdiocese’s more than 180 Catholic parishes.

“You can explore their beauty, enjoy a few quiet moments, or attend Mass in one of a dozen languages,” he said.

More information about parish locations and Mass times can be found on the Archdiocesan website.
