New York City, NY -- Regnum Christi families, members of the RC Mission Corps and Mission Youth, Legionaires and RC consecrated women were busy evangelizing in New York City during Holy Week 2012.

Msgr. Don Sakano, pastor of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral, said, “Due to all the street evangelization here during Holy Week, we at the Old Cathedral will be experiencing the ‘buzz’ for weeks.  I cannot begin to tell you about the many stories I have heard already and will hear from local people about your outstanding presence in the neighborhood.  It is truly unique, but one we should do more often (hint, hint.)”

Along with many other activities, Mission Youth members sponsored a prayerful walk through Manhattan carrying a large wooden cross on Good Friday.  They talked with bystanders and accepted prayer intentions which they nailed to the cross.  Click here for the video.

The members of the RC Mission Corps and Mission Youth also staged a dramatic recreation of the Stations of the Cross in the Soho area, starting and ending at St. Patrick’s.  Click here to see the video.
