Archdiocese of St. Louis promotes door-to-door evangelization

Catholic World News - April 30, 2013

The Archdiocese of St. Louis recently hosted a conference devoted to door-to-door evangelization.

“We’ve been tricked into thinking faith is a private matter,” said Kenneth Livengood, a parishioner who spoke at the conference. “That’s a lie. Faith is meant to be public, and there are many ways to share it.”

“Divide up into teams of two,” Livengood told the 125 people in attendance. “One of you can do the talking and the other should be a silent prayer warrior. At the next house, flip your roles.”

    Years ago, priests used to make parish rounds. They would visit the sick and actually be in touch with and know most of their parishioners - too bad it's not that way anymore.
