"Being Christian is not the result of an ethical choice or a lofty idea, but the encounter with an event, a person, which gives life a new horizon and a decisive direction [...] Since God has first loved us (cf. 1 Jn 4:10), love is now no longer a mere 'command'; it is the response to the gift of love with which God draws near to us."
- Pope Benedict XVI, Deus caritas est, 217, 218
Welcome to the "New Evangelization"
The Secretariat for Catholic Life and Evangelization is available to provide support and service to parishes and the lay faithful. Whether you are a faith-filled Catholic, someone who is struggling with the Catholic faith and her teachings, or one who no longer practices the Catholic faith, we welcome you and are here to assist you in your faith journey or quest for the truth of our existence.
Please feel free to contact us at any time at 610-289-8900. From evangelizing youth, youth adults, families and adults, we are happy to form and train individuals in parishes to seek personal conversion thus encountering Christ and His love in a new way. When individuals encounter Christ personally, they become evangelizing witnesses, joy filled and ready to share the love of Christ with their family members, co-workers, friends, neighbors and fellow parishioners.
