Volunteers stand outside churches on Super Bowl Sunday holding soup pots. As people leave worship services, they are asked to put in $1, which is turned over directly to a soup kitchen, food bank or another charity the church designates.

In 1996, Catholics in South Carolina accounted for the largest statewide denomination- al participation, with 21 parish- es joining the drive. Bishop David B. Thompson of Charleston has agreed to be list- ed as a Souper Bowl advocate, joining various leaders and ath- letes such as San Diego Charg- ers coach Bobby Ross, a Catholic, and former first lady Rosalyn Carter. "We really would like to get more congregations involved," the effort's organizer, the Rev. Brad Smith of Spring Valley Presbyterian in Columbia, said in a statement. "It is such an easy way for all of us to greatly impact our local communities and to collectively make a dif- ference across the country. "I hope that more people will get involved this year and help us top our $2 million goal." St. Mary's Catholic Church in Rock Hill, S.C., has participated in the Souper Bowl fbr five years in a row. Other Catholic church- es that have been involved are St. Hugh in Carmichaets, Pa., Anaconda Catholic Community in Anaconda, Mont., and Holy Martyrs in Falmouth, Maine.
