Default Catholic evangelism course?

I saw a Protestant evangelism course online, but it was anti-Catholic. I would like to be able to learn how to evangelize better, though. Everything I have done so far was thought up on the spot, because I live in an area where nearly everyone is either a pagan or a liberal "Christian." the liberal ones are absolutely against evangelization even though Jesus commanded it.

I have looked, but all I can find are apologetics websites. I have read apologetics stuff like crazy, but the best attempts i have seen to defend sexual morality (no fornication, no contraception, no remarriage, no abortion, etc.) fall on deaf ears around here when I repeat them.

Another thing they can't get past is the problem of bad believers. I try to be a good example, but around here, what bad believers do speaks so loudly that they cannot hear what I say or see what I do. Hence, evangelizing by example is also a failure in an anti-Christian culture.

Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can learn to evangelize better? I would like it if there were some class I could take online, or just some suggestions in general will be welcome.

Thank you all for your help.
