Is it wrong to evangelize?

I know in the past, the Catholic Church was well-known for sending missionaries all over the world to proclaim the Gospel. I also know that some of the “tactics” used for conversion were bad, but that’s not the point of the question. I’m wondering (sincerely wondering, I’m not a rad-trad trying to start anything), does the Church today still send missionaries to seek conversions to the Catholic faith? Or is that opposed to ecumenism? I heard on CNN yesterday that the Church no longer tries to convert Jews and Muslims, recognizing instead that we all worship the same God. Is this true? Is it wrong to try to convert to the Catholic faith now?

Please give me some insight. Thanks and God bless.
