St. Paul Street Evangelization Two-Day Workshop

Friday, September 18, 7-10 p.m. &
Saturday, September 19, 8-4 p.m.
Location: St. John the Baptist, New Brighton

EvangilizationSt. Paul Street Evangelization is a non-profit Catholic organization dedicated to preaching the Gospel to all nations, and one of the ways they do this is by bringing the Catholic faith to the streets. They provide a hands-on experience of being a street evangelist, but the training goes beyond street evangelization, it also provides effective tools to share the Gospel with the people in your parish, school or workplace. The Office of Evangelization & Catechesis will be cooperating with the Harry J. Flynn Catechetical Institute to bring this exciting two-day workshop! Registration is $75, which includes materials, breakfast and lunch on Saturday, and a snack.

A person does not need to be a theologian or professional apologist to be an effective evangelist. A person only needs to have a heart for Jesus Christ and His Church and be willing to share that with others.
For more information contact Tim Koran at 651-772-4636 or Kay Mottaz at the Parish Office 651-842-6022 or register online here.
