Catholic Society of Evangelists
"As; For Me A Worldwide Apostolate Centered on love for Jesus Christ Consecrated to the Blessed Virgin Mary Loyal to Peter's successor Catholic Society of Evangelists 22797 Barton Road, Suite 117 Grand Terrace, California 92313 USA 909-825-0377 No email address is available The world is in urgent need of rediscovering Jesus Christ and of doing so within His Catholic Church. You can be a powerful instrument in communicating this life transforming message. St. James teaches us... If anyone among you should stray from the truth and someone brings him back, he should know that whoever brings back a sinner from the error of his way will save his soul from death and cover a multitude of sins. (5:19, 20)
Who We Are
The Catholic Society of Evangelists is a worldwide independent apostolate, under the patronage of St. Francis de Sales, and consecrated to the Blessed Virgin Mary. We are responding to Pope John Paul II's call for the Catholic laity to become more active in the Church's mission to evangelize (Ecclesis in America). We are a non-profit association which relies solely on donations to continue this work. All of our members are volunteers and receive no financial benefits.
Catholics love their faith but many lack confidence and skill in sharing it with others. Our mission is to provide members of the Catholic Society of Evangelists with the basic tools and assistance necessary to communicate the truths of the Catholic faith, to help active Catholics grow in the faith, bring former Catholics back home and give solid information to searching non-Catholics.
We pledge our uncompromising loyalty and fidelity to the Catholic Church and to its only authentic teaching authority -- the successor of Peter, the Vicar of Christ, the Pope, and to those Bishops who are loyal and in union with him. Anyone willing to take the same pledge of loyalty is invited to become a member and receive our support.
We pray that through the Holy Spirit, all may come home to the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church. That more and more Catholics open their hearts to the work of evangelization. We pray that all Catholics will spend more time in prayer and adoration before our Lord Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. We also pray that all develop a true devotion to our Blessed Mother, say the rosary regularly. attend daily mass, study Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition.
Perform the work of an evangelist. -- 2 Tim 4:5
