Father Loras Grell, pastor, decided to launch a chapter of the national apostolate out of his parish last fall. After talking to his friend Wayne Ringer of St. Mary Parish in Denton, who spearheaded Saint Paul Street Evangelization efforts in Lincoln, Father Grell approached parishioners in Plattsmouth with the idea.

...
"We did it a couple times last fall," Father Grell reported, "and we started about the second week of June with the farmers market."
He recruited members of the Legion of Mary as the first members of the team.
"It seems to fit very well in their charism," he said.
...
While the price of an actual booth at the farmers market was too high for the parish budget, Father Grell worked with the Plattsmouth Main Street Association (which organizes the market) to choose a place just across the street for the evangelists to stand.
"I spoke personally to executive director Charles Jones, who helped me decide our location," Father Grell said.
...
Father Grell said that this outreach is an important statement in Plattsmouth.
"I want people to know there is an opportunity to know the Lord better," he said. "If we don't have this kind of outreach, it's almost like we're hiding our candle under a bushel basket…We're saying, 'we're here, we're kind, we're friendly, we want to welcome you.'"
Generally speaking, the opportunity to speak with somebody who comes up to the team is a rewarding experience for both parties. Father Grell recalled a little girl destined for the parish school's incoming kindergarten class who chose a rosary in her favorite color. The following Sunday, he saw the whole family at Mass.
"Whenever you see a family come to Mass intact, it's almost a miracle," he exclaimed.
Recently, Father Grell was with the team when a local gentleman approached them.
"He told us his mother prayed the Rosary every day, but he apparently doesn't practice the faith," Father Grell recalled. "We gave him a medal, and he attached it to his motorcycle somehow."
It's gratifying to think that all the rosaries this man's mother prayed may have led to his open attitude about the Saint Paul Street Evangelization team.
"It shows that great faith can be passed on," Father Grell said.
