St. Paul Street Evangelization

St. Paul Street Evangelization is a grassroots, non-profit Catholic evangelization organization, dedicated to responding to the mandate of Jesus to preach the Gospel to all nations by taking our Catholic Faith to the streets. We do this in a non-confrontational way, allowing the Holy Spirit to move in the hearts of those who witness our public Catholic presence. St. Paul Street Evangelization provides an avenue for you to share the Person of Jesus Christ and the truth and beauty of the Catholic Faith with a hungry culture.

In order to build a civilization of love, we must first create a culture of evangelization.

Join the Team

Our street teams have shared the Gospel with tens of thousands of people and thousands have become Catholic or returned to the Catholic Church. Our non-confrontational approach is welcomed by communities all over the world. St. Paul Street Evangelization is not an apologetics ministry. Instead, we build bridges of trust with our communities and help people encounter Jesus Christ & His Church through listening, friendship, prayer, and proclamation. People thank our evangelists for their presence every time they go out and share their faith in the public square. Join or start a team today!

Basic Evangelization Training workshops and retreats are the perfect way to transform parishes into inviting, evangelizing communities. Parishioners learn simple, effective tools to share their faith in the circumstances of their everyday life, whether or not they join one of our street teams. We have offered workshops throughout the country including the Franciscan University of Steubenville, Sacred Heart Major Seminary (Detroit), St. John Vianney Seminary (Denver), the Archdiocese of Detroit, the Archdiocese of Boston, the Diocese of Oakland, the Diocese of Austin, the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, the Archdiocese of Washington, the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis,  the Archdiocese of Vancouver, and many more.

Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke

“I am very happy to have the occasion to express my deepest esteem for St. Paul Street Evangelization. This apostolate…is doing a tremendous work in bringing Christ and his truth and love to all parts of the United States and also in other nations. I give my whole hearted support to the work and I pray for it daily that it will continue and grow for the sake of the salvation of many souls… I am happy on this occasion to recommend to you St. Paul Street Evangelization and urge you to become involved with it.”

Most Reverend Allen Vigneron

“One of the new methods [of evangelization] I would like to recommend is the work of St. Paul Street Evangelization … I, having personally participated in their work of street evangelization, enthusiastically endorse this group … I encourage you to join me in offering your prayers and support for this organization.”

Steve Ray

“Street evangelism is as old as the gospel itself. The Apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ were the first street preachers announcing the good news of salvation and the Church in the streets of the Roman Empire. This tradition was practiced by the great saints throughout history and is alive again with and spreading across the globe. The faithful Catholics who make up St. Paul Street Evangelism live up to their name. Support them, follow them, join them!”
