This is our third annual Global Edge Night and Service Project. This year we are focusing on the corporal work of mercy of “giving drink to the thirsty.” This Edge Night will give the youth an awareness of the lack of clean water to millions of people in the world. Through a “change drive,” the global Life Teen and Edge community will raise money to build and maintain four water wells in Africa. Finally, this Edge Night will reveal Christ as “living water” for all our needs.
Edge Night at a Glance
In September of 2008, Life Teen hosted the first global Life Night and Edge Night and as one family, we donated over 300,000 pounds of clothing to charity. In September 2009, we moved from clothing to food and we were able to donate over 200,000 food items to local food pantries and soup kitchens. This year we are at it again. This time we are joining together to “give drink to the thirsty” (another corporal work of mercy). We are asking all our Life Teen and Edge parishes to do the same Edge Night on the same night – September 27, 2010 (or as close to that date as possible). This time we are collecting change (and bills) to bring clean drinking water to villages in Africa.
