Welcome to your local chapter of St. Paul Street Evangelization.
St. Paul Street Evangelization is a grassroots, non-profit organization, dedicated to responding to the mandate of Jesus to preach the Gospel to all nations by taking our Catholic Faith to the streets. We do this in a non-confrontational way, allowing the Holy Spirit to move in the hearts of those who witness our public Catholic presence.
We’re back out on the street after a winter hiatus! We have received inquiries about this ministry from a number of people, two of whom joined us last Saturday outside Macy’s on Summer street in Downtown Boston. We prayed with several people, one woman had had a heart attack and we prayed for her healing. Then we learned that she worshipped at a Jehova’s Witness Kingdom Hall. She was about to walk away when she said that, but we asked her to come back and explained that the Catholic Church is the true church. We gave her several brochures and directed her to St. Anthony’s Shrine, which is right around the corner from our site. Another precious woman came by. She was legally blind. We prayed with her and gave her a miraculous medal. Several other people and families stopped by and lots of Rosaries, Miraculous Medals, and pamphlets were gratefully received. We had several Spanish-speaking families and we were so glad we had some “How to Pray the Rosary” in Spanish on hand. It was a beautiful day and the Holy Spirit was out there with us.
My co- team leader had an encounter on a street in downtown Boston a few months ago. A man exited a bar just in front of her. She offered him a few holy cards, and he become overcome with emotion. He kept shaking his head and saying “you don’t know, you just don’t know what I’ve done in my life.” She told him it was never too late and she prayed with him. He thanked her and took the cards.
Please get in touch with me if you think you might be interested in street evangelization. It’s not as scary as you think! We’ve had wonderful encounters.
