Help Wanted!

Door to Door Evangelists

Now is the time! Archbishop Vigneron reminds us of the Great Commission by sending us on mission to UNLEASH THE GOSPEL! We have gone out and knocked on hundreds of doors in our community. But that’s not enough! We are going DOOR TO DOOR on the third Wednesday of each month to let our neighbors know that they are loved and that we are here to pray for them and pray with them, and that they are welcome, wanted, and needed. We need you to help us accomplish our goal of visiting every house within St. Thecla’s boundaries. Yes, YOU CAN serve in this very important outreach mission! This is Holy Spirit led–If physical limitations restrict you from going out, you are still needed as a prayer intercessor.  This mission is for each and every one of us.  One by one…and every one counts!

Here are some of our observations:

What I noticed is that when people get a chance to tell their story – talk about where they are from, how many people are in their family, how long they have lived in the neighborhood – they really get excited. Also, anyone we offered to pray with happily joined in.

Pastor, St. Thecla Parish

Going door to door to evangelize was like taking the time to walk down the street to say hello, and meet a new neighbor at times. Some people are open and friendly and enjoy meeting you too. Others may politely let you know they’re not interested. Many aren’t home. But the only way to meet someone, to know our neighbor, is to knock at their door. As we do our part in faith, we can trust God will open the doors before us.

It was great to go out into the community and see how familiar the people are with the outreach. Everyone we met were friendly and most open to hear what we had to say.
