First Farmers Market a Success

September 16, 2019

The Ellensburg Street Evangelization team was able to hit the streets for the first time this summer and it was a great success. We set up on a shaded corner and greeted passersby with smiles on our faces. We were able to hand out about a dozen rosaries and even a couple of miraculous medals.

We spoke to a woman who has been away from the church for a number of years but has been feeling a draw back to the faith. She is currently attending a church in another denomination but has been noticing that something, namely the Eucharist, is missing from her life.

Another woman we spoke with was raised as a a Christian but has been drawn towards the Catholic Church. She told us that she watched Mass on EWTN everyday, so we invited her to Mass at St. Andrew’s to experience the Mass in person.

All in all, we had a great time and enjoyed the opportunity to give the Church a presence in public. Please keep us and those we speak with in your prayers.


We’re ready!

Street Evangelization comes to Ellensburg!

September 16, 2019


My name is Jeremy and I’m the coordinator of the brand new Ellensburg Street Evangelization team. The team is still in the planning stages, but I thought I’d update this site a little to let everyone know what’s going on.

First, a little about myself. My wife Rachel and I met here in Ellensburg back in 2008 while we were students at CWU. We were both involved in Catholic Campus Ministry at CWU and spent a couple of years as Peer Ministers there. We got married in 2012 and moved to Bellingham, WA after I was hired as the Pastoral Assistant for Faith Formation at a parish in the area.

It was in Bellingham that I first learned about St. Paul Street Evangelization. I formed a team and we went to the streets with the message of Christ’s Church. Before we could get solid momentum going, however, Rachel and I relocated back to Ellensburg for work.

We are now active parishioners at St. Andrew’s Parish and are still involved in campus ministry. It’s my goal to finish what I started in Bellingham and get a street evangelization team running full steam here in the windy city of Ellensburg.

If you’re interested in becoming an Ellensburg SPSE team member, please email me at or find me after Mass at St. Andrew’s.

God bless!
