This report comes to us from team leader Melissa with our team in Milford, OH:
Ginette and I decided to evangelize at our parish this weekend. We had the display set up for all four masses. The response was amazing and extremely welcoming. We now have a team of 8 evangelists – I love our parishioners. One of the highlights for me was definitely the kids. Little girls were excited to put a necklace on with a saint medal and watching dads put the Crucifix on a chain and placing it on their son’s necks was a beautiful sight to see. We had two elderly ladies fill out a prayer request form. One eager college student asked if he could take some brochures – I would love to see what seeds he’ll be planting.
After the 2nd Mass ended I noticed a young lady sitting on a curb, so I invited her over to see the medals and reminded her they were free. She asked for one that’d be good for a new Catholic. I recommended the Miraculous Medal for healing and the St. Benedict medal for protection from evil. I also offered her a Bible and a rosary but then she seemed to start withdrawing so I backed off. I asked her if she needed a ride home and she said “Yes”. I asked her name and she said “Courtney” (my daughter’s name is Cortney). I apologized for being too pushy and told her I get excited when I meet new Catholics. As we talked it turns out she is not Catholic but her grandma is. I invited her to RCIA and told her when we meet and tried to describe the people that are currently attending to try and ensure her it would not be too overwhelming. I left her with my name and number in case she needs a ride. Please pray that Courtney takes me up on my offer.
Just as we signed up two new members, Chris and Pat, they noticed the falcon watching us while perched on our bell tower. It was something to behold. This was truly an amazing weekend. I’m looking forward to working with our new team and start spreading the good news which we have all been so blessed to have received.
Praised be Jesus Christ!
