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.
San Francisco (or, “the city of Saint Francis”) has a long, rich Catholic history (believe it or not!). For example, in 1961, Holy Cross priest Father Patrick Peyton led a public Rosary at the Polo Fields in Golden Gate Park; 550,000 people attended, making it one of the largest gatherings in the history of San Francisco.
