Bring a friend to church

Posted in Uncategorized by frtonys on June 18, 2020

Good morning.
Our pastor, Fr. Joe and I have often spoke about having a “BRING A FRIEND TO CHURCH SUNDAY” say once every three or for months. On that day, after the Mass, we would meet for 30 to 45 minutes to explain who we are as a Church community and have a light luncheon to following. It might be just what someone needs to motivate them to come to Church and experience what we are about.

Remember the story in the Gospel of John where Andrew and Peter, after hear the Baptist refer to Jesus as he “Lamb of God”, followed Jesus and asked where he was staying and the Lord said ” . . . come and see.” We just might be the one to say the same thing to a person we know.
The Dominican Timothy Radcliffe tells us today:”Clearly a big challenge for Christianity is how to remain in contact with the millions of people who look for God but do not come to Church.”

“Bring a friend to Church.” You don’t know what will happen until you invite the and say “Come and See.”
Peace and All Good
Fr. Vinnie, osf
