40 Down, 4 Million to Go

“The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into His harvest field. (Luke 10:2)
In a small chapel, in a tiny village, on a remote island, a handful of friars are laboring in God’s fields.
The Dominican friars of St. Joseph’s Church in Greenwich Village on Manhattan Island are on a mission.
They won’t be satisfied until everyone in New York City is converted to Christ and His One, True, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.
Apparently, as Lent is running down and we quickly approach Easter, the parish’s RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) program, the program by which non-Catholic adults learn more about the Church, has forty…count them, FORTY…adult converts to the Church.
