Dear Catholic Evangelist,
Welcome to the home of our St. Paul Street Evangelization’s training website. This website has been carefully prepared to ensure that all Catholics, especially those with a heart for evangelization, will be able to increase their knowledge of the faith and learn how to effectively share it with those that they meet out on the street and in everyday life. Each person we meet should be treated with the dignity they possess as a person created in the image and likeness of God.
The witness that the Lord gives of Himself and that Saint Luke gathered together in his Gospel – “I must proclaim the Good News of the kingdom of God” – without doubt has enormous consequences, for it sums up the whole mission of Jesus: “That is what I was sent to do.” Those who have received the Good News and who have been gathered by it into the community of salvation can and must communicate and spread it. – Paul VI, Evangelii Nuntiandi 6, 13

By completing this training you will be better equipped to serve as an “instrument of peace” in the Church, to share the joy of the Lord, and to bring the good news of the Christian faith to the street. We hope to alleviate most of the anxiety you may feel about your call to evangelization. While a little nervousness is only natural, evangelization is really about treating people as a friend with whom we would like to share a gift. It is through friendship that the New Evangelization thrives.
