St. Maximilian Kolbe knew one small act of holiness could help save a soul. He transformed the lives of millions starting conversations by giving away the Miraculous Medal. St. Teresa of Calcutta and St. Paul Evangelization Institute founder Steve Dawson similarly built their movements by giving away Miraculous Medals to people.
St. Paul Evangelization has grown from one act of kindness – giving away Miraculous Medals, talking to people and praying for them – into more than 300 chapters (and growing) in 45 states and seven nations. Today, our movement gives away more Miraculous Medals Catholic sacramentals and evangelizing materials than any other U.S.-based apostolate.
The St. Paul religious community and School of Evangelization, both based at our Warren, Michigan campus, work with St. Paul Street Evangelization partners and chapters to train, mobilize and equip Catholics for the urgent work of the New Evangelization.
The Evangelist’s Prayer
Come, Holy Spirit! Set our hearts on fire with zeal for the Gospel, love for all people, and the desire for their salvation. Inspire us that we might proclaim the Gospel persuasively and with charity, giving witness with our words and our lives. Give us courage in proclaiming the Lordship of Jesus Christ, and the truth, beauty and goodness of our Catholic faith. We beg you also to open the hearts of all people, helping them, to know your love and Your calls to the fullness of life in your Church. We make this prayer in the name of Jesus Christ, Our Lord, Amen.
