WHO WE ARE

St. Paul Street Evangelization (SPSE) is a grassroots, non-profit organization, dedicated to responding to the mandate of Jesus to preach the Gospel to all nations by taking the Catholic Faith to the streets. Christ’s call to evangelize was made to every Catholic Christian. As an on-the-street Catholic evangelization organization, St. Paul Street Evangelization provides an avenue for people to share the Person of Jesus Christ and the truth and beauty of the Catholic Faith with a hungry culture.

Founded in May 2012, St. Paul Street Evangelization provides the tools and resources for Catholics to engage the culture in a simple, non-confrontational method of evangelization which involves making themselves available to the public to answer questions about the faith and to pray with those who request it. SPSE has had tremendous growth and now has teams throughout the United States and the world.

Our mission: To train, equip, and mobilize Catholics for the urgent work of evangelization. Especially for the proclamation of the gospel in the public square.

Find a Team

We have evangelization teams all over the United States and throughout the world. Click on the link below to go to our locations map and contact a team near you. Our team leaders would be happy to help onboard you to their team so you can evangelize when the team goes out.

Most teams evangelize on the weekends, in the evenings, or during major events. They go to places with lots of foot traffic, or do door-to-door ministry in rural areas or where pastors request it. 

If you don’t see a team near you, we will help you start a team. We do not charge our teams anything to operate. We just ask that one member, usually the team leader, become a Sustaining Partner.
