Is there a Catholic outreach and what are its reasons?


I am writing a paper on evangelization by various Christian faiths for a masters class in religious studies. I am trying to discover what motivates Catholics to do outreach. Can you help me with this? Also, can you point me to what might be considered an “official” Catholic stand on evengelization and why a Catholic should want to reach out?

Thanks in advance


Hi Suzy,

These links will give you the scoop on Pope John Paul II’s challenge to all Catholics for a new evangelization:

This website and all of Catholic Answers progarms as well as those of EWTN are examples of the new evangelization.

Fr. Vincent Serpa, O.P.
