The mission of the Office of Evangelization is to infuse a spirit of evangelization into all corners of diocesan life â€“ in homes, parishes, schools, prisons, workplaces, and all of society â€“ so that every person in the diocese can draw closer to Our Lord Jesus Christ in the Catholic Church.
Along with evangelization, this Office also includes other outreaches, including Family Life, Prison Outreach, Catholics in the Public Square, Outreach to the Elderly and Vulnerable, and Prayer and Spirituality.
Evangelization involves proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ (evangelization) as well as defending the truths of the Faith (apologetics).
