Description

Do you have the heart to sleep out for the homeless? Join us on Friday March 15 to raise awareness and funds for those experiencing homelessness. We will start with Stations of the Cross at 6:30pm, followed by Mass, Eucharistic Adoration, sharing and bonding. There will be an opportunity to learn more about Catholic Street Missionaries. The next morning, we will end with sharing our experiences at breakfast. It's FREE. Registration is required.
