This year’s Holy Week mission in New York City was the best yet.
I had the grace to join them this year, flying up from Atlanta on Wednesday to join in the action and help the group of Mission Youth Missionaries who participated in the Living Stations of the Cross. I flew back home to Atlanta on Holy Saturday for the Easter Vigil to witness the baptisms and confirmation as my parish — I was a sponsor for one of them. Finally, last night I completed this video from the Living Stations. Here’s a look at missionary zeal in the streets of Manhattan:
Here is a sample of what we did no Good Friday:
- Cross Walk in NYC converging at Old Saint Patrick’s Basilica in Soho.
- Celebration of the Lord’s Passion in the Basilica
- Living Stations of the Cross
- “Midnight Run” bringing food, clothes, and other supplies to homeless people in the New York City.
And street evangelization all day long!
Later this week, I will publish a second video from the “Cross Walk” with over 50 Mission Youth Missionaries, down 70 blocks from Central Park, through Times Square, finishing at Old Saint Patricks Basilica in Soho.
The Mission Lasted 4 days and there is much more to tell. I will share those experiences later this week when I post the Cross Walk video. Until then, God bless and Happy Easter!
