Grandma evangelizes with holy cards

Karen Mahoney reported, Special to "Your" Milwaukee Catholic Herald, April 17, 2008, in the "People of Faith" series. The grandma is Eileen Sabbath, a member of St. Sebastian Church in Sturtevant. The evangelizing includes giving holy cards with Halloween treats.
Last year, she ran out of candy and began to apologize to one group of trick or treaters.

"They were older kids, junior and senior high," she said, continuing. "I told them I was so sorry that I didn't have any more candy. But they told me that they didn't come for the candy; they only came for the cards.

Martyrs' holy cards would be a good fit for Halloween; some of St. Sebastian, for example.
