What is Summer Street Patrol?
Street Patrol came into being in 1995 when as a young man, Lucio had a conversion experience after being away from the church for some time. He started going to Mass frequently, embracing the Sacraments and reading the Bible but still felt something was missing. He just wanted to help people.
"I looked into my parish bulletin and saw the Office of Catholic Youth was running a sandwich program which later would become Street Patrol," said Abbruzzese who now teaches religion at Toronto's Michael Power-St. Joseph's School. "I showed up on a Wednesday in 1995 and haven't stopped yet. I basically took it over soon after and have been running it ever since."
