Hey team,

Things have been stagnant for the first couple of months this year.  We are being invited to take part in an initiative to have four outings during Lent.  I'd like input as to any ideas you have as what we can attend.


Pancake Breakfast

December 16, 2019

Today I set up a table at the Pancake breakfast put on by the Knights of Columbus after the 9:00 am mass at St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic church in Ann Arbor, MI. The MC of the breakfast made an announcement at the beginning of the event that I was there and encouraged guests to visit for free rosaries, literature and stories of evangelization. I gave out more rosaries than I had in several outings previously, mostly because the children were fascinated by free things. Unfortunately I did not become engaged with anyone to discuss their faith but it was a great occasion of giving the love of God freely to others.

Free Miracles

December 5, 2019

As I was setting up my station, a man approached me and asked who I was associated with. I told him St. Paul Street Evangelization. He knew all about us as he was with campus ministries (I was on central campus at the University of Michigan). I felt very supported by his fellowship and encouragement.

At this point my partner showed up and we spent an hour offering rosaries and Miraculous Medals. One person took a rosary saying he had a home altar and many other rosaries. I got creative and started offering “free miracles”. A woman ran up to me all excited and asked for that free miracle. I gave her a Miraculous Medal and explained what it was. I took her name and asked for what she wanted prayer. She said she needed a miracle for her grades as her friend bust out in giggles. I promised to pray for that miracle.

It was very cold and I discussed with my partner finding a place indoors for the winter months. He was in full agreement.

Praised be Jesus Christ! God is ready to perform these “free miracles” that today’s evangelist promoted. All we have to do is ask Him!
