Westminster Church on Nicollet Mall

Several months ago, a group of Interfaith leaders approached the Minnesota Super Bowl Host Committee about using the occasion of the Super Bowl to tell the world a uniquely Bold North story of unity and community amongst the diverse people and faiths who are Minnesota. The group wanted to use football as a way to show the world that, in Minnesota, we’re all on the same team. The group came together with the MNSBHC and today released a football-themed video featuring Minnesota leaders from twelve different faiths, inviting Minnesotans and our visitors to join them for an interfaith gathering. The gathering will be held on Sunday, January 28, at Westminster Church on Nicollet Mall, in the heart of the celebrations. The gathering will benefit the Emergency Rental Assistance Program of Downtown Congregations to End Homelessness. (Details here:
