St. Martin of Tours Costume Give-away and Surprise Street Ministry!
On Saturday, October 25th, the Journeys group from Holy Spirit, Bellevue and St. Luke’s, Plattsmouth assisted with the Annual Halloween costume Give-Away at St. Martin of Tours in South Omaha. About 30 children from the St Martin’s neighborhood were able to select a Halloween costume at no cost. Thanks to Jennifer Moffett, Hailey Gomeringer-youth, Bobby Richter- youth, Molly Storm- youth, Lee Moffett- youth, Kristi Smith- adult, Ken Gomeringer-adult, Mere Bradley- Journeys Leader, Rich Bradley- Journeys Leader, and Rachel Bradley-youth.
On Sunday, October 26th, the power went out in the St. Martin of Tours neighborhood. That didn’t stop the congregation from worshiping. Everyone pitched in to take chairs, table, books and chalice outside to celebrate the Eucharist on the front porch of the church. It was a beautiful, sunny fall day—a good day to enjoy God’s creation outdoors. Passersby waved and honked and even joined the worship service.
