Night Out Against Crime

On October 17, the national Night Out Against Crime was observed at the Peace Center in New Orleans, LA. Friends and families gathered for a grand celebration. Set-up took no time at all thanks to a group of students from Creighton University who were on their fall break service trip to New Orleans.

After set-up, the students played volleyball with children from the Peace Center’s After School Program and enjoyed food prepared by neighbors. Several seminarians joined the event with some of their parishioners from St. Rita. Many police officers from the Second District stopped by throughout the course of the party to chat and enjoy the company, even for a short time. Next year promises to be an even bigger celebration.
