PAWTUCKET â€” The 2014 6th Annual Catholic High School Homeless Sleep Out, unfortunately could not be held at the Cathedral of Sts. Peter and Paul this year.
Instead, it will be hosted by Saint Raphael Academy tonight. There will be a Diocesan Professional Day the following dayâ€”so all Catholic High School students in the Diocese of Providence will not have school. The five schools participating in the Homeless Sleep Out are St. Raphael Academy, Bishop Hendricken, LaSalle Academy, the Prout School, and Bayview Academy.
Two-hundred students are expected at this event.
