Outreach visits are visits to rural villages or visits in the local town, where we visit private homes. We may go to a number of homes simply to greet people and pray with them, to invite them to the local prayer services. We come with the attitude of listening, without pressure or proselytizing. Our visit is an attempt to know the people better, and hopefully an indication that the people are loved and important, and they are welcome to come to the weekly prayer service. We let them know that we are available to help them in any way that we can and be a bridge to the Church, the parish. We like to have some materials to share, whether religious articles or pieces of candy or something meaningful. We often visit the sick in their homes to bring the sacraments and pray with them. Going out to peoples' homes is a desire of ours that comes from the heart, and it is a privilege to be received into peoples' homes and hearts!
I will seek the lost, and I will bring back the strayed, and I will bind up the crippled, and I will strengthen the weak. (Ex 34:16)
