Evangelization is the essential mission of the Church. There are three levels to evangelization that can be summarized as: “KNOW your Faith, SHARE your Faith, LIVE your Faith”.
Pope Francis is his Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium (The Joy of the Gospel) calls all Catholics to be reinvigorated in their faith and to let the Gospel live in them with new joy.
Ongoing evangelization of Catholics is supported by the various ministry offices.
The Office of Catholic Education assists Catholic schools and early childhood learning centers in their ongoing ministry wherein religious education and formation is an integal part of daily life for both active and inactive Catholics, as well as, persons of other faith traditions.
The Office of Faith Formation & Religious Education assists parishes in outreach to Catholics who no longer actively participate in their faith and to those who are searching for a faith community.
The Office of Worship and Liturgy assists parishes in creating liturgies that draw people closer to the heart of God through worship and liturgy.
