Houston's oldest church is offering a religious experience especially for Super Bowl fans.

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- If you want your favorite team to win the Super Bowl, having God on your side couldn't hurt.

The oldest church in Houston says it is offering a supernatural touch to Super Bowl 51.

Annunciation Catholic Church is allowing worshippers to light a candle of the color of the team you are rooting for, and to say a rosary with matching beads.

Whether you choose the red candle for the Falcons or a blue for the Patriots, the church says Saint Sebastian will watch over them as the patron saint for athletes.

The church will also host a concert and wine tasting Friday night, followed by a barbecue fundraiser on Saturday.

Annunciation Catholic Church is located at 1618 Texas Avenue, at the corner of Crawford near Minute Maid Park.
