Rhode Island parishes undertake door-to-door evangelization

Catholic World News - September 06, 2012

With the encouragement of Bishop Thomas Tobin and the assistance of the Legion of Mary, six Rhode Island parishes have undertaken door-to-door evangelization efforts since 2010.

β€œIn total, these days have resulted in the visitation of about 7,500 homes and conversations with some 3,500 people, with about 370 asking for follow-up, such as requests for visiting the homebound, rides to Mass, information on annulments, or how to have their children baptized,” says William Patenaude, a member of the Diocese of Providence's Committee for Evangelization.
