St Paul Street Evangelization
St. Paul Street Evangelization (SPSE) is an international nonprofit organization dedicated to the preaching of the Gospel message to all peoples, just as Jesus commanded His disciples. SPSE equips Catholics with training and faith formation, printed catechetical resources, and various sacramentals and holy items, allowing them to bring the Catholic faith right to the streets. East SPSE chapter shares with others the fundamental Gospel message: our Lord Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection for the sake of our salvation from sin and death, and His invitation into an intimate relationship with Him through His holy Catholic Church.
The mission of evangelization goes beyond duty—1t is a joy! What could be more rewarding than to proclaim the immense love of God and hope of eternal salvation that is now offered to every human person? Indeed, members of our parish’s SPSE chapter have attested to the effect evangelization has had on their own faith, increasing and emboldening it.
Our parish’s SPSE chapter sets up our table in a public setting once a month, including at local events such as the Apple Harvest Festival, Ithaca Festival, and Chili Cook-Off. We also regularly offer a prayer ministry at our parish’s food pantry. In all settings, we engage interested passers-by in conversation, loving them as we get to know them, offering them our prayers and sacramentals, sharing the good news of the Gospel with them, and inviting them into a relationship with Jesus Christ and our Catholic parish community.
