Ministry At The Mall

Twice, I’ve almost moved to Portland. It would be cool to visit this guy, but then quickly get out of the way so he could keep talking with those who need it.

We try to impress on our students the value of ministry where their peers are. We have a very comfortable building for our committed Catholics. But thousands of Iowa State students profess Catholicism on their school applications and never darken our doors. We’ve moved most of the student Bible studies and small groups to campus.

If we had a mall in the parish, we might consider going there, too, like Father Antoninus Wall. Cast those nets into the deep.

  1. What, another coincidence, Todd-Fr. Tony visits us annually for our parish mission! Sweet, powerful priest.
