Aurora, NE. Today’s story comes from a new team in the Cornhusker State. While it’s currently a team of one (a priest), he says using the new items (medals, holy cards, rosaries, sign) he purchased from our store on the street brought him joy, and doing evangelization just feels right. He feels called in this climate (presumably the current COVID-19 crisis) to be on the street.
The following report comes to us from evangelist Fr. Loras and our team in Aurora, NE:
I spent two hours on Sunday afternoon at the west side of the Hamilton County Courthouse. After taking some pictures, I announced my presence on my personal Facebook page at about 3:15 p.m. I brought and set up materials (including rubber gloves and Cami-wipes to hand materials to people), and almost right away I had a visitor. It was a parishioner, very well known to me, and he said he saw me and wanted to see what I was up to.
While I gave out no materials during the outing, several people walked or drove by and greeted me. I was glad just to be a presence out there. No one was discouraging or derisive, although several chose not to look and just ignore. Grateful for the small things…my cap to place under my brimmed hat, as well as having some water to drink.
Praised be Jesus Christ!
Wonderful! St. Mary’s in Aurora is where I made my Marian consecration, back on August 15, 2015!
It is very nice and encouraging to read that Priest is doing street evangelization. God Bless.
I have a house in Greeley, NE and next time I am there I will try to join you. So glad you are doing this.
BTW, I’m hoping to do an event in Greeley in September with rosaries and a booth.
@Susan Long, You have a house in Greeley? I’m actually from Spalding!
I actually know Patty Bauer. And a Father Bauer married my parents. Yes I have a house there and hope to retire there someday.
I want to give out Irish themed rosaries and holy cards at their airing Festival. I’ve been making rosaries to this end for a year.
@ Jacob: that is cool! Our St. Mary’s Church is a faith-filled community.
@ Susan: Greeley is not that far away, I realize, but I don’t usually have reason to drive over that way. I know it is a great community of faith. You are welcome here!
