Pope Francis, Evangelii Gauidium 273
My mission of being in the heart of the people is not just a part of my life or a badge I can take off; it’s not an “extra” or just another moment in life. Instead, it is something I cannot uproot from my being without destroying my very self. I am a mission on this earth; that is the reason why I am here in this world.
Ash Wednesday Mission: March 1, 2017
Holy Week Mission: April 9-15, 2017
Missionaries are needed to greet people on the street, offer them a Rosary and let them know there are priests in the Confessional. All are welcome, everyone has a gift to give street evangelizer, walk people to church, church greeter, youth chaperone, prayer, childcare, mission store manager: adults, couples, youth and families all needed. “Are you Catholic?” is what we ask and then see where the Holy Spirit leads.
