The following report comes to us from station leader Michael with our Immaculate Conception parish team in Somerville, NJ:
On Main Street yesterday, there was a good amount of foot traffic. I encountered a gentleman, Marcus, who wanted a Rosary. When asking if he was Catholic, he said he was, but has fallen away the past few years. He still says little prayers throughout his day, which I affirmed was a good practice, and wants to reconnect again more deeply with his faith. We prayed together for him on the street for the grace to continue to go deeper in his faith.
Mirna had a few encounters with two groups of people who wanted Rosaries. In addition, a younger woman in her 20s stopped to chat with Mirna. She is Catholic, but felt disconnected from her former parish. Recently, through friends, she has been involved with a non denominational church and loves how welcoming it is. However, she did want a Rosary and permitted Mirna to explain to her the different mysteries and why we pray the Rosary.
I want to thank Mirna for pinch hitting on the street in place of Carolyn, but also to Carolyn who became a prayer warrior yesterday for us albeit she had been under the weather.
Praised be Jesus Christ!
