A Eucharistic procession is not the first thing people expect to see on the streets of Hollywood, California.
But last Saturday, that's what happened, with hundreds of people taking part in an evening of prayer and encounter with the homeless.
Nathan Sheets, executive director of The Center, a group that works to fight isolation among the homeless, told CNA that the event provided "an opportunity for individuals from the community, and outside the community, to have a [long-lasting] encounter."
"Seeing the common humanity in other individuals can only happen with these types of encounters, and I believe that from those types of experiences ... our imaginations for how we can help can be spurned to more than just on one night."
