There is a common misunderstanding that street evangelization is the same as “Bible thumping” or “proselytizing”. Rather, it is about offering a listening ear, sharing in a conversation about Jesus Christ, and praying (for any reason) with those that want it. By taking our Catholic faith to the streets we aim to make the message of Jesus Christ accessible to everyone by being available to anyone.
Our Mission is to train, equip, and mobilize Catholics for the urgent work of evangelization. The St. Paul Evangelization Institute has taken a direct approach to evangelization that leads to relational ministry. This is not unlike the work of St. John Paul II or Billy Graham. Although evangelization can seem complicated, the good news is that it does not take a long time to train in order to get started.
The St. Paul Society of Evangelists is a group of laymen who started living in community in the summer of 2018 with the intention of dedicating their lives to the work of evangelization through the formation of a Society of Apostolic Life. Is God calling you to give your life as an evangelist? Visit the Society website to inquire about visiting the brothers.
