The Latin origin of the word "compassion" is “to suffer with”. In the cold, bleak winter, the
suffering of the homeless is greater than we know. Join us as we express compassion by
leaving our comforting heated homes behind and spend a night camping outside Faith Des Peres. Bring your flashlights and sleeping bags on January 28th to sleep in solidarity and raise awareness for our homeless brothers and sisters. We will conclude our experience of living compassion with a collection of helpful goods for the homeless one week later. In
addition, you can participate by lending camping gear, food, or drink for the evening and morning. Wear your long john's and invite your friends!
"Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me." Matthew 25:40
