What a great way to evangelize!

Fr. Goyo Hidalgo of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles recently shared his evangelization efforts on social media as we prepare for the Christmas season.

The parish priest posted multiple photos as he rearranged stockings, decorations, and other household items, spelling out religious messages. In two pictures, he spelled “God” with stockings and letters. In another photo, he spelled out “Jesus.”

He told one user that he rearranged items in multiple stores, including Hobby Lobby and Target.

Here’s his post below:
