Has God Pikachu? Popularity of Pokemon Go opens door for church evangelization

Father Thomas Keller, pastor of Assumption Parish in St. Louis visited with Pokemon game players in the church parking lot.  The Parish grounds are a hot spot for the game, and so he and his associate pastor, Father David Miloscia have used the Pokemon craze for some creative evangelization. The high school friends are Alex Koelz, Adam Salman, Blake Koelz, Alec Richardson and Brennan Moore.

The messages are posted across campus at Assumption Church in south St. Louis County:

Attention Pokemon trainers: Feeling alone? God already Pikachu!

Looking for Pokemon? Maybe God is looking for you!

Playing with cheat codes? We've got a sacrament that can fix that!
