How do you evangelize? Read this book!

I just finished reading the most helpful book about evangelization I have come across, and believe me, I have shelves of books on evangelization! Jared Dees’ To Heal, Proclaim and Teach is a practical, easy – to – read handbook covering real life evangelization. It is written for Church ministers and educators, but everything is easily applied to street evangelization. If you would like a jumpstart on the ins and outs of evangelization and a motivating summer read, consider this book. To Heal, Proclaim and Teach on Amazon

The Presence of Jesus in Evangelization

Praised be to Jesus Christ! The Twin Cities SPSE team spent two days (16 hours) evangelizing at the Hopkins, MN Raspberry Festival on July 16 and 17. Both days were glorious Minnesota summer days; the Virgin Mary came through with blue skies and a gentle breeze even though the forecast was for thunderstorms. She even arranged for our table to be next to the 1981 DeLorean in the car show, drawing lots of people our way! Thirteen first time evangelists from all over the Twin Cities joined me for the festival.

Welcome!

Welcome to your local chapter of St. Paul Street Evangelization.

St. Paul Street Evangelization is a grassroots, non-profit 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.

Christ’s call to evangelize was made to every Catholic Christian, and the Second Vatican Council reiterated this need, urging each of the baptized to bring the Gospel, found fully in the Catholic Church, to a culture that has largely reverted to paganism. As an on-the-street Catholic evangelization organization, 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. Click Get Involved on the menu to find out how you can help.
