This year has flown by, and the boys can’t believe that the 2012-2013 LTP Session is over THIS WEEK!! And the boys are going out with a BANG!!
This week’s virtue was BE LOYAL. Our guest speaker Pawel Machura not only spoke, but brought his guitar and played some songs for the boys as well. Be sure to ask your boys what some corporations and a juvenile detention center have in common.
The boys had several activities this week. First they made some snack bags for the teen shelter that was visited during the Midnight Run. Then the boys went outside for a competitive game of Angels and Demons, trying to listen, while blindfolded, to the right voice for directions! And then off for a great game of BLITZ. It was a great day for all.

On Saturday, two full busloads of boys, dads, grandads, priests and brothers loaded up and headed downtown for the annual Midnight Run The boys visited Scottish Towers, My Brother’s House, Bethesda Bainbridge and the YSI Teen Shelter, serving dinner, playing BINGO and handing out the donations of t-shirts, socks and toiletries that we’ve been collecting over the past few weeks. After a beautiful mass at St Augustine’s the boys and men headed into the city subways to pass along more of the items we’ve been collecting. And the night wouldn’t be complete without a run up the Art Museum steps and some late night breakfast at Minellas. A special thank you to Jim Gabriele, Ed Morris, John Ziegler and John Gilroy for their help with the logistics!
