COVID-19 and Street Evangelization: Praying for Discernment

February 27, 2021

"Blessed be God in all His designs." - Bl. Solanus Casey

Thank you to Pam Hehl for her leadership of our team, which fell primarily during the COVID-19 pandemic. Prior to the pandemic, Pam and Matt had worked together to improve the prayer station at St. Francesca's, with a semi-private area to pray comfortably with guests in the lobby. How beautiful it is to minister to the guests spiritually as well as in material goods. At this time, Pam has stepped back as leader and I (Molly) will be interim leader for now.

Congratulations also to St. Francesca's for a banner year, surpassing 1 million pounds of food distributed in our community and expanding their services for the Avila Room pregnancy support services. Matt, Tina, and all the volunteers are doing great work.

So what does the future hold for our team? What does the future hold for our Church? Lent is the perfect time to pray for discernment, along with fasting and works of mercy/almsgiving. I humbly request that all of our team members join in discernment for the future of our team and praying for God's will to be done, first in each of our hearts and second in our vocations and apostolates, offering our prayers to Jesus through Mary.

I pray that we will gather in joy during the Easter season and will be able to plan for OneFest and some other activities over the summer. The pandemic is not over but the saving Word of God cries out for messengers. Romans 10:13-15

Praying for a fruitful Lent leading to the joy of Easter! Repent and believe in the Gospel, my brothers and sisters!

In hope,




Healing in Evangelization Workshop

March 19, 2020

This last Saturday, March 14th, 15 individuals from the Chippewa Falls area attended the workshop on Healing in Evangelization.  We are now inspired and sent forth to more effectively pray with individuals who are in need of healing.  The feedback has been great. Those in attendance were touched deeply. 

Also Deb & Denise did an awesome job teaching us.  Thank you!!

Hi everyone,

I hope you had an enjoyable summer.  Where does the time go!

I am pleased to announce that we are partnering with St Francesca Resource Center.  We have been evangelizing there and they, (Matt E & Barb N), from STFRC  have graciously offered to support us financially in spaying for our supplies a couple times each year.  This is a great gift to us.  Thank you.

As you know, Molly stepped down as our team leader.  Thank you, Molly, for your fime leadership.  We wish you many blessings in your new position!🙏





"SPEI at SFRC": Partnering with St. Francesca Resource Center Food and Clothing Pantry

July 26, 2019

It was about one year ago when Matt from St. Francesca Resource Center in Chippewa Falls (SFRC) said he'd been meaning to ask me about something. He knew about our fledgling prayer and evangelization ministry, and he knew that the guests at his food and clothing pantry needed more than just material nourishment.

Since about April 2018, our team has partnered with SFRC, and we have been blessed with Matt as a team member. Pam H. has been a tried and true leader in this effort, with several other team members filling in as well. The center is open every Tuesday, and we try to be there at least twice each month. We greet guests, talk with them about whatever is going on in their lives, pray with them and/or take written prayer requests. We've invited many guests to our churches or ministry groups, like Catholic Connect.

“It is precisely because he is ‘sent’ that the missionary experiences the consoling presence of Christ, who is with him every moment of his life – 'Do not be afraid…for I am with you' (Acts 18:9-10) – and who awaits him in the heart of every person.” Pope St. John Paul II, Redemptoris Missio.

Pray. Love. Repeat. Praise God for this beautiful partnership! We are so thankful.
