Archbishop Gregory M. Aymond of New Orleans and Archbishop Daniel M. Buechlein have entered the Super Bowl sweepstakes.
And Catholic school students in the Archdiocese of Indianapolis are getting a day off thanks to the Colts’ Feb. 7 Super Bowl appearance.
Archbishop Buechlein announced last week that he has declared Monday, Feb. 8—the day after the Super Bowl—as a free day for archdiocesan schools.
The Archbishop O’Meara Catholic Center in Indianapolis will be closed on Feb. 8 as well.
Archbishop Buechlein said, in part, he wanted to acknowledge the Colts and the “strong examples of positive role models and community involvement” demonstrated by the team.
Archbishop Buechlein and Archbishop Aymond have a lot riding on the game. If the Indianapolis Colts win, Archbishop Aymond will send Archbishop Buechlein a shipment of New Orleans’ best gumbo.
If the New Orleans Saints win, Archbishop Buechlein will send Archbishop Aymond a shipment of southern Indiana pork chops. †
