Great to be Back!

August 4, 2020

It was wonderful to be back evangelizing at St. Leo's Kitchen!  My partners were not able to join me so Beth, kindly offered to be my partner.  Some of the guests were people that I have prayed with before and some were knew faces.  In almost all situations, people accepted our invitation to receive and join in prayer and, very willingly came to the table to choose a medal, a rosary, etc.  Each guest had their own story and cross to bear.  More importantly, they realized that we need to give thanks to Jesus Christ for the Bessings we have as we knock on His door.

We always feel so welcomed by the staff, who also enjoy praying with us, willingly accept precious gifts of medals, rosaries. etc and believe in the power of prayer.

I felt we were able to keep it safe, considering the new parameters with which we have to work.  Firstly, we evangelized outdoors (rather than in the building as we normally do), which was a most refreshing experience.  All people were asked to wear their masks, we had hand sanitizer available, we kept our social distance, and all items were placed in small plastic bags.

Thanks to the Holy Spirit for answering our prayers to find a workable way to continue this valuable experience of bringing the Word of Jesus Christ to more people! We will return some time in August, the date has yet to be determined.
