Church hears the call and steps up!

Priest Sighting.  (Parishioners love to brag on their shepherds who come out to the sidewalk!)  Recently ordained priest, Fr. Reuben Chen, Parochial Vicar at Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton,  came to the sign-up table after Mass awhile back and signed up.  And that was just the beginning.  He announced the vigil during daily Masses to encourage others to come out to pray.  And on his church's adopted day, there was Fr. Reuben on the sidewalk.  He is the first "priest sighting".  Thank you Fr. Reuben for standing with your parish family.  Your presence and prayers proclaims: The Church is HERE!)

24 Hour Club Alert.   Also on the sidewalk is 24 Hour Club, Knights of Columbus prayer warrior, Minh Tran. He plans to be out there even more this Fall.  During this past year, Minh and others from his church regularly came to pray. THANK YOU, Minh!

The Carpool.  A wonderful "SEAS" lady ran carpool most of her church's adopted day for those who wanted to go to the vigil site, but needed a way to get there. What a great idea!  She brought a group, prayed, loaded back up ... and off she went to fetch another group. THANK YOU, dear lady, for your prayers and sacrifice!

Holy Almighty God, we give you thanks and praise. amen
