Does your parish have a PET? Help it get one this Advent – for free!

Take your place in the Church’s new evangelization!

Months before leaving for Los Angeles, Archbishop José H. Gomez stated in You Will Be My Witnesses: A Pastoral Letter to the People of God of San Antonio On the Christian Mission to Evangelize and Proclaim Jesus Christ:

“I am very enthusiastic about the growth of evangelization teams in parishes throughout our Archdiocese.  This is just the kind of pastoral initiative we need! The parish exists in order to spread the Good News. I call upon pastors and parish leaders, in cooperation with our Office for Evangelization, to become even more committed to equipping parishioners to defend their faith and to give account for the hope that is in them. Our people must know their faith well… and they must know the urgency of the duty to evangelize.” (No. 16)

Help make your parish anevangelized and evangelizing community of faith! Join the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for the New Evangelization in its efforts to reach inactive Catholics and the growing number of unchurched and secularized people, and countering what pope Benedict called “the dictatorship of relativism” – a religion of unbelief!

Thanks to a grant, we will hold one FREE Advent Parish Evangelization Team Training Workshop and two FREE Home Visitation Training Workshops this December!
