Chaired by Deacon John White, the Evangelization Committee meets at 6:30 p.m. on the first Wednesday of each month. Its purpose is to initiate processes and programs for the rector which will assist him with the spiritual growth of the parishioners, to reach out to fallen away Catholics and assist with their return to the Church, and to inspire and encourage those who may wish to join the Catholic Church.
"For the Church, evangelizing means bringing the Good News into all the strata of humanity, and through its influence transforming humanity from within and making it new” (Pope Paul VI, Evangelii Nuntiandi).
Evangelization has several components:
Evangelization is an ongoing process. It is a person-centered ministry, and its core is the person of Jesus Christ. The message of evangelization always remains the same: dedication to conversion of self and others in the power of Him who was crucified, died, and rose again. This dedication leads to a renewed parish, which in turn becomes an evangelizing parish, reaching out and welcoming strangers.
If you are interested in joining the Evangelization Committee, please contact the parish office at 393-3930.
