San Pablo Catholic Church is forming a St Paul Street Evangelization Team
Friday, January 13, 2023
St. Paul Street Evangelization (SPSE) is a grassroots, world-wide non-profit organization, dedicated to responding to the mandate of Jesus to preach the Gospel to all nations by taking the Catholic Faith to the streets. Christ’s call to evangelize was made to every Catholic Christian.
By engaging in a simple, non-confrontational method of evangelization, volunteers go where the people are: parks, events, etc, and wait for the public to approach us rather than shouting with a bullhorn at passersby.
Our teams always begin in prayer, maintaining a peaceful presence and allowing people to approach if they choose. Initial contact is limited to a friendly greeting and an offer of a free Rosary, miraculous medal, or pamphlet, but the evangelist never tries to force anyone to stop and talk. This involves being available to the public to answer questions about the faith, and offering to pray with those who request it.
We are looking for volunteers to build a team in Marathon. Our goal is to have a presence at the Seafood Festival and Monthly Outings. Please contact Jacob in the choir for more information or contact the church office.
