The Reuters news service reports that Willi Holzhammer, an Austrian Catholic deacon, will be touring the province of Tyrol and offering spiritual guidance—in supermarkets. For five Saturdays Deacon Willi will dispense free spiritual counseling from tables in grocery stores in different Tyrolean towns. He believes these “personal encounters” are an important step in reaching out to people.
The retired computer specialist already has Facebook page where people can "Ask Willi" for advice.
