October 2, 2010, 5:00 PM - October 3, 2010, 8:00 AM
Our high school youth will be joining with other parishes to raise money for homeless teens in Mankato. We will be sleeping outside in cardboard box "camps" to raise awareness and solicit donations. It is also a wonderful penance to offer up for the world's homeless.
The night will include: Entertainment, a presentation on youth homelessness, a midnight prayer service, prizes (for creative boxes and most money raised) and breakfast.
This event starts at the 5:00 PM Mass in St. Joseph the Worker and will end at 8:00 AM the next day. Youth may not attend this event if they are unable to be at the 5:00 PM Mass. Since participants will be up most of the night, they would be in no condition to attend Mass in the morning. After 5 PM Mass, participants would have a little free time to get dinner on their own before joining the site at about 8:00 PM. Participants will need their own ride to our site, the Madison East Center.

1. A large cardboard box (one person per box) to sleep in. (Decorate it: Prizes will be given for creative, appropriate, designs.)
2. $5 for entry (Due: Sept 23)

4. Code of Behavior (Due: Sept. 23)
