St. Paul School of Evangelization, 2020/2021

The Mission is Urgent. The Moment is Now.

Responding to the Great Commission of Jesus to go out into the world and make disciples, the St. Paul Evangelization Institute is excited to announce that we are bringing the St. Paul School of Evangelization to St. Mary of the Hills, Rochester Hills, Michigan.

If the word evangelization strikes fear in you...to quote St. John Paul II, “Be not afraid!” Our instructors will teach you the basic information you need to know. And if you’re scared of rejection...which is rare, but does happen...just remember, Jesus was rejected too!

Ultimately, our weekly School of Evangelization is designed to help ordinary Catholics like you and me become extraordinary evangelists in their own communities. We meet once a week in the evening and include time for teaching, discussion, small groups, activities, prayer, and worship. We’ll host outings where the group evangelizes together in different settings to get you comfortable with evangelizing, and finish with a final year-end project. Our school will be at the service of the parish where the school is located in order to assist the pastor in carrying out his vision for evangelization.

Students will:

  • Become equipped and empowered to live out their extraordinary call as missionary disciples.
  • Use the best methods, insights, and strategies of effective evangelization.
  • Learn how to authentically proclaim the Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ.
  • Discern charisms which the Lord performs through us as signs of the Kingdom of God.
  • Foster personal growth through a specialized ministry team that accompanies each participant every step of the way.
  • Apply knowledge and gain confidence through small group learning, real world experience, and best practices!

Classes begin Thursday, September 17, 2020, and will be held in the Parish Hall. Classes continue on Thursdays through May 2021, with interruptions for the holidays.
