Evangelization Committee: “Preach the Gospel at all times and when necessary use words.” ~ St. Francis of Assisi The great missionaries, saints and doctors of the Church share a total consecration of their life and apostolate to the Blessed Virgin Mary. All great “Evangelizations” were profoundly Marian. The greatest “New Evangelization” after the time of Christ and the Apostles was the ministry of Saint Francis of Assisi who “rebuilt” the Church. Saint Francis consecrated his entire life to Mary. He is the first saint to identify Mary as the “spouse of the Holy Spirit.” Through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, our Evangelization Committee works to spread the “Gospel” through active participation in our parish and community. Reaching out to all to bring about a deeper faith and relationship with God. If you would like to learn more, please call our parish office.
