The following report comes to us from team leader Sharon with our St. Raphael parish team in Crystal, MN:

We had a brisk, partly sunny morning for our first Drive Thru Prayer of the year. Phil, Serena, and Sharon were joined by five new people this morning. Brad and Joe, who sometimes stand with signs in various places nearby, were invited to join us this morning with their signs. Jack, Julius, and Suzanne, who came to our kick-off information meeting, joined us as well.

In addition to our normal SPSE materials and our inventory of gently used Catholic books, we were handing out “door hangers” to people that stopped. Our young energetic pastor wants these door hangers distributed to the neighborhood to invite people to check out St. Raphael. Included in the “door hanger” is a half sheet advertising our Free Food, Friendship, and Faith nights which will occur in June and July. To the bags we handed out today, I added SPSE Catholic Audio Cards with a sticker affixed advertising our first Sat. drive thru prayer.

We had barely finished setting up when two cars drove up requesting prayers. Caught off guard with a car driving up so soon, Sharon forgot to give a door hanger bag when she gave a Miraculous Medal to Susan for her friend who is suffering from lung cancer. The rest of the people received both medals and door hangers. In total we spoke to ten groups of people.

Please pray for Rick-suffering from lung cancer, Patience-that she may be adopted by her Aunt Esther, and Alfreda-who wants a revival of her prayer life and is having marriage difficulties and all of people who stopped by and those who honked happily as they drove by appreciating what we are doing.
