New Evangelization

The “New Evangelization” invites people into a relationship with Jesus Christ and his Church; it strives to engage our culture while drawing inspiration from the Gospel and it calls all Catholics first to be evangelized and then in turn to reach out to others.  New evangelization is derived from teachings of Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI and it is at the heart of the Year of Faith.
