Resources for parishes and individuals

Catholic Evangelization:
What is it?

There is no true evangelization if the name,
the teaching, the life, the promises, the Kingdom, and the mystery of Jesus of Nazareth, the Son of God are not proclaimed.” – Pope St. Paul VI

OFE and Parish Partnership:
Do not be afraid!

Do not fear: I am with you;
do not be anxious: I am your God.
I will strengthen you, I will help you.
I will uphold you with my victorious right hand. – Isaiah 41:10

Is it I, Lord:
How do we Evangelize?

But Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?”
God answered: I will be with you; and this will be your sign that I have sent you. When you have brought the people out of Egypt, you will serve God at this mountain. – Exodus 3:11-12


Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.. – Proverbs 3:5-6


For whatever was written previously was written for our instruction, that by endurance and by the encouragement of the scriptures we might have hope. – Romans 15:4


Do not be overcome by evil,
but overcome evil with good. – Romans 12:21
