The New Evangelization
The New Evangelization is the Church’s call for us to go out and evangelize, that is, to share the Gospel, with baptized Catholics who may have heard the message of the Gospel before but need to hear it in new ways in order to be able to embrace it.

The New Evangelization is about reaching out to those who have heard this Good News. It is bringing that message forward with new ardor, new methods, and new expressions, so that the people of this age are able to hear the gospel with fresh ears, and, we hope, commit or renew their commitment to being intentional disciples of Jesus Christ.  Read more...
