About

Martha Fernández-Sardina is an international, bilingual new evangelization speaker, trainer, writer, and ministry consultant whose life’s mission is to “prepare the way of the Lord” (Jn.1:23, Is.40:3) echoing the Church’s call for a new evangelization and a new springtime for Christianity. Martha has touched the lives of thousands of individuals of all ages and ethnic backgrounds through engaging radio and TV shows, insightful articles, and hundreds of lively talks in over 40 of the United States, in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Dominican Republic, Italy, and Portugal.

She helps Catholics “rediscover the joy of believing and the enthusiasm for communicating the faith” (Porta Fidei, 7) and become saintly effective everyday evangelized evangelizers by obeying the command to “duc in altum” (“put out into the deep”) and perform what she calls “an obedience-testing, faith-stretching, trust-strengthening, vision-expanding, team-building, space-enlarging, net-busting, boat-sinking miraculous catch” with and for Christ, during the Year of Faith and throughout the Third Christian Millennium.

Her over 25 years of experience in the new evangelization, media, apologetics, catechesis, and youth and young adult ministry include planning, chairing, and speaking at numerous diocesan, national, and international conferences, seminars, retreats, prayer workshops, and parish missions in the U.S. and abroad; teaching theology; producing and hosting TV and radio shows; forming parish evangelization teams; assisting organizations in reaching Spanish-speakers; and developing training and outreach programs, including the Hispanic Festival of Faith, the Hispanic Month of Evangelization and N.E.T.S.-New Evangelization Training School– a dynamic, up-to-date, practical, and useful new evangelization training school taught in English and Spanish to help Catholics become better educated, enthused, and equipped for an effective new evangelization in their parish, family, workplace, neighborhood, city, and wherever they go.

As founding Director of the Office for Evangelization for the Archdiocese of San Antonio in Texas, as Director for Evangelization for the Archdiocese of Washington in DC, and as Assistant Contiental Director for Evangelization 2000, Martha has helped parishes, schools, apostolates, and families become evangelized and evangelizing communities of faith.
