Let us introduce ourselves to Lebanon!
April 11, 2021
On Saturday, April 10, the St. Francis De Sales and St. Philip's St. Paul Street Evangelization team spent the day at the Let's Lebanon! event. This event is an expo for local businesses and organizations to get together in one space and gain exposure to the public. The team spent their Saturday letting the Lebanon community see what SPSE is all about. Special thank you to Charlotte for setting up our booth the Friday before- it looks beautiful!
We met those that came to the booth with smiles and friendly hellos and would you like something free? We offered books and pamphlets, rosaries, medals and crucifixes. Each booth at the event had an item to raffle off in a drawing. Our raffle items were a rosary bracelet and the book The Joy of Praying the Rosary. In order to enter into the raffle, guests were asked to fill out a prayer request. Many weren’t interested in the drawing, but still left a prayer request. There is that theme we saw from the team's first event- the true power is in prayer! Prayer is what people are truly yearning for more than just free stuff. The team will be creating a prayer journal with these requests submitted at the expo and whenever the team meets we will pray for all of these requests and the ones we will get in the future.
We had a great day meeting the community of Lebanon and letting them know that we existed. Many people thanked us for starting this team and being out there, especially with the way the world is right now. We are looking forward to meeting many more members of this community and anyone the Holy Spirit puts in our path.
