Office for the New Evangelization
“It is like a mustard seed that, when it is sown in the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on the earth. But once it is sown, it springs up and becomes the largest of plants and puts forth large branches, so that the birds of the sky can dwell in its shade.” Mark 4: 31-32
The office for the New Evangelization works to realize the diocesan vision of being a vibrant, evangelizing and missionary Church.
The New Evangelization calls each one of us and all parishes to go forth to proclaim the Gospel. It focuses on those who do not know Christ or do not follow him yet. The Gospel is proposed “to those awaiting the first evangelization and to those who have experienced a serious crisis of faith due to secularization.” (Cf. Pope Benedict XVI)
We hope that the work of this office, in collaboration with all the faithful, will produce a great harvest for Christ, so that all people can dwell in his love and mercy, now and for eternity.
