Have you ever wondered what it must be like to spend the night out in freezing weather, hungry and with no place to go in New York City? Sadly, this a reality for many homeless throughout New York City. Want to do something about it? The Contemporary Roman Catholics will join the Frassati Fellowship (in partnership with the Archdiocese of NYC)

Respond to the call of Pope Francis to be the face of Christ to the poor.

Come on Thursday, January 30th and distribute blankets and hot coffee to the homeless men and women in Union Square.

Your witness has the power to change someone's life!

Please bring your spare or donated blankets!
