Helping fellow Catholics at local Heritage Day festival

September 27, 2022

Many Catholics stopped by the SPSE Pottsville team's display tent during the Schuylkill Haven Heritage Day festival on September 24th, 2022. It was a beautiful, cool autumnal day, and the Lord was reaching out to Catholics specifically, it seemed. Even those folks in the crowd who were approached by the team members were Catholic!

Many folks gladly accepted rosaries and miraculous medals, and when asked, were proud to proclaim they were practicing Catholics. Fallen away Catholics were welcoming of prayer for healing and the courage to return to the faith! The team ministered to a practicing Catholic who struggled with daily prayer and a personal relationship with Jesus, and women who were suffering from post-abortive trauma, guilt, and shame.

All team members gained valuable experience praying for others and proclaiming the gospel message.
