Bishops of Kansas City and Tampa Bay Area Talk Football Ahead of Super Bowl LV

Bp Mahomes Jersey

Missouri will be represented in football's biggest game on Sunday for the second year in a row. The Kansas City Chiefs face off the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV, a historic game for both teams.

For a bit of fun, Bishop James V. Johnston of the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph, and Bishop Gregory L. Parkes of the Diocese of St. Petersburg, FL, sat down with Cardinal Dolan to discuss the upcoming game (starting at 40:05).

This isn't the first time Bishop Johnston has represented the Chiefs in a big way; last year, we reported on his gift to Pope Francis, and his friendly wager with the bishop of San Francisco. We're rooting for Kansas City this weekend, too, Bishop. Go Chiefs!
