“For the Church, evangelizing means bringing the Good News into all the strata of humanity, and through its influence transforming humanity from within and making it new”.
Pope Paul VI, Evangelii Nuntiandi
Evangelization is not a program but is an integral part of all we do here at Mother Seton Parish. It touches every aspect of parish life, and is the energizing core of all of our ministries.
Each one of us has a baptismal call to reach out to fallen away Catholics and assist with their return to the Church, and to inspire and encourage those who may wish to join the Catholic Church.
Evangelization is an ongoing process. It is a person-centered ministry, and its core is the person of Jesus Christ. The message of evangelization always remains the same: dedication to conversion of self and others in the power of Him who was crucified, died, and rose again. This dedication leads to a renewed parish, which in turn becomes an evangelizing parish, reaching out and welcoming strangers.

“If you happen to be with an atheist who tells you that he does not believe in God, you can read him the whole library, where it says that God exists, and where it is proven that God exists, and he will not believe. [However] if in the presence of this same atheist you witness to a consistent, Christian life, something will begin to work in his heart…. It will be your witness that brings him the restlessness on which the Holy Spirit works.”-Pope Francis
