The archbishops of Los Angeles and Cincinnati announced a friendly wager on Wednesday, Feb. 9 ahead of the upcoming Super Bowl between the Los Angeles Rams and the Cincinnati Bengals, and are hoping that the game will inspire others to support their Catholic schools.
Archbishop Jose Gomez of Los Angeles will send Archbishop Dennis Schnurr of Cincinnati baked goods from L.A.-based Porto’s Bakery if the Rams lose to the Bengals. Schnurr will send Gomez a crate of Graeter’s ice cream should the Bengals lose.
In addition to the food wagers, the archbishops are also donating money to support the Catholic schools of their archdioceses, and are encouraging the faithful to make a donation as well. Donations can be made at the website for the “Bishops’ Big Game.”
