The New Evangelisation ...

... in Soho, described here by Aunty Joanna.

I was particularly struck by the distribution of gift-bags containing a Scripture verse, a medal .... and some sweets.

A few years ago now I was able to take part in one of St Patrick's weekends of evangelisation, and, on another occasion, one of their Eucharistic processions. Central London, busy streets, narrow streets with cafes and shops facing close on to the streets. My memory is of bystanders being quite respectful, though they might not have shared, or had any comprehension, of the faith of those processing.

Aunty's post gives something of the "feel" of these events. They are quite something to be part of, if you have the chance.
