It’s hard to believe another year of LTP has finished, it sure did go fast!! The boys enjoyed pizza and soda to begin their final session and reviewing the 10 Commandments with Br Patrick.
Our speaker this week was John Betz, local business man and father. Mr. Betz talked to the boys about what the 10 Commandments mean to them. He gave the boys some sage advice, including to Let go and Let God. He also reminded the boys that integrity is doing the right thing even when nobody’s watching you.
The boys played dodgeball in the gym and then it was time for the most anticipated announcement of the year — the winners!! The boys and teams were awarded for sportsmanship, tenacity, and leadership throughout the session.
On Saturday several 3rd and 4th graders and a few dads came together for a retreat. Br Patrick gave a short talk and then the men and boys prayed the rosary. Then the whole gang put together the bags and boxes needed for the Midnight Run. They did a great job and when the 5th-8th grade came later that day everything was ready for them to take into the city.
There are very few words that could describe the boys spending their Saturday night downtown visiting homeless shelters and passing out food and clothing to those on the streets if the city. Please take a few minutes to watch the video from the Midnight Run, it is truly moving:
And here’s a video of the last session, it’s awesome to see all these smiling faces!!
Thank you to everyone who made this year’s LTP sessions great! A special thank you to Fr Zlock for allowing us to take over St Monica Parish Center, it is greatly appreciated.
Stay tuned for information on next year’s session! See you in the fall!!
