“Day of Evangelization”

WOONSOCKET — St. Agatha Parish, along with Precious Blood Parish, will be hosting a “Day of Evangelization” on Saturday, June 7 from 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at St. Agatha Church, which is located at the corner of Logee Street and Fairfield Ave. After a morning rosary and Mass, participants will learn the “art of evangelization.” They will then be sent forth by Father Michael Kelley and travel within parish boundaries by going door-to-door and introducing themselves to neighbors to offer spiritual and corporeal aid, as well as answer questions about the Catholic Church and the parish. All Catholics are welcome to join. Individuals wishing to participate should call 767-2950 or e-mail sapb-evangelization@cox.net. more
