Southampton Days Fourth of July Parade
September 19, 2019
Don and Nancy were blessed for the opportunity to sezzztup a prayer station at the annual July 4th parade through Southampton. Following Mass, we decided on a last minute change of venue for St. Paul Street Evangelization, thinking there must be some way that our presence at the July 4th parade in our own community could work out, despite the thought that everybody would be sezzzt in their places and not likely to happen by our station. It turned out to be a good change ~ and right in front of our own beloved OLGC church!
We met many of the people in our general vicinity and also some people passing by. It was so nice to be enjoying the freedom to share our Catholic faith with the community as we saw many other community churches and organizations represented in the parade itself. Many people accepted religious medals and prayer cards and were very thankful. There were several Catholic people we met who were very uplifting to us, one from St. Robert’s parish in Warrington who was very interested in joining our team and doing street evangelization with us, and then many who were curious about what we were doing and so thankful to us for our witness. One sweet lady asked if we promised to be back again next year, telling us that she watched us the whole time and was so moved by us and our prayer station at our small town parade.
We had the opportunity to pray with several people, please include their intentions in your prayers:
Jack – for peace in the world
Shannon – for family health and safety and especially for her firefighter brother’s safety
Cathleen – for her Aunt Jan’s full recovery from her stroke
Shannon and Samantha – mom and beautiful special needs child – for patience, peace and joy and for Samantha’s continued amazing development (was never supposed to walk… boy she was walking for sure, mom trying to keep up!)
Linda – for her health and for baby Christian
Judy – who suffers over recent loss of husband
Jessica and young Daniel – for baby Noah in mommy’s tummy.
Hannah and Michelle – for Hannah’s upcoming school year
