On Tuesday Nov. 11, Fr. Alex Kratz came from the Archdiocese of Detroit to offer us some ideas to move us toward a more comprehensive Evangelization mode here at Our Lady of Refuge. 62 people braved the rainy weather to hear his presentation see picture below!
Father came armed with so much good information and ideas that it was almost impossible to remember it all. We came up with a few memorable quotes to help you get into the Evangelization Spirit – the Holy Spirit!
“First encounter the beauty of the Savior – then embrace the Holy Spirit!” “Mary is our model! She is the spouse of the Holy Spirit, the mother of the Son of God and the daughter of the Almighty.” “Establish the mission and continually hold it up!” “We all need to move from a borrowed faith to an owned faith!” “Ask the Lord to show Himself to you and then watch Him swoop in and make Jesus real to you!” “We need to ratify our baptism!” “We need to move from Maintenance to Mission!”
Thank you to one and all – especially to Anne Dzuiba who did most of the publicity and thank you to the Worship Commission for providing snacks and drinks!
Keep watching the bulletin for activities and help to surrender our lives to Jesus!
