So what’s the latest with “A Visit with St Paul?”
Well, for various reasons, I haven’t been lining up many events. Instead, Maeve and I have been praying about the future of “Visit.” It’s been obvious to us that the performance blesses people as it opens up to them, not only the life and legacy of St. Paul, but more importantly, the power and beauty of the Gospel. Yet, it has been a struggle to “open doors” in both churches and schools. Frankly, it has been tiring. So, we’ve been praying for the Holy Spirit to make it clear to us, just what efforts should be made and how we might more successfully “knock on doors,” even when many of those doors seem to be shut.
That being said, I’m pleased to report that I shall perform at St. Mary’s Church in Ballston Spa, on Sunday, October 9th, at 2 PM. The performance will be in their auditorium, which is to the right of the church.
After that, the next event will be at St. Joseph’s Church in Broadalbin, NY on Sunday, November 13, after the 10:30 Mass. Start time should be approximately noontime.
As the above photo indicates, I also perform for schools. In our diocese, I kept the kids interested at St. Jude’s in Wynantskil. Their questions afterwards demonstrated their strong interest and lively intelligence. If you want to read more, please go to “A Visit with St. Paul,” and scroll down to see how much the Spirit was at work that day with the great kids at St. Jude’s.
Please pray that more principals would be open to inviting me to their grade/high schools! And church pastors of course. In fact, if you would be so kind, you can either contact me if you think your pastor or school principal might be interested, or simply forward them this blog. If you choose the former, my phone # is 518 355-4843. I really appreciate your help!
Maeve and I extend our heartfelt greetings to all of you as the summer winds down. We pray that you may get in as much recreation as you can and that your hearts may be filled with the incomparable joy of the Lord, for as St. Paul exhorts us;
“Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I say; rejoice!” -Phil. 4:4
