Evangelization is a fancy word for “spreading good news." We see loads of stories in the New Testament of people who have experienced God’s unconditional love and forgiveness, and can’t help but tell everyone they know about it. It’s a lot like when you get a gift you’ve always wanted. You just need to tell someone. The gift we receive from God is eternal life! No gift is better than that. God’s command to “go and tell people all about it” is no burden to us at all when we’ve come to experience the gift of His love.

Evangelization at St. Joseph

Here at St Joseph’s, we work to share the good news of Jesus formally, through programs like ALPHA and RCIA, and also informally, through relationships and invitation. If you’d like to learn more about how we share the good news through our ALPHA program click here. If you’d like to learn more about how we share the good news through RCIA click here.

Everyone at our parish is invited to share the good news of God’s grace with the people in their lives. It’s hard to share the good news when you don’t feel like you yourself have had a chance to really experience God’s goodness. If you feel like you’ve never had a chance to experience God’s love, or have never really heard the good news of God’s promises, we would love to have you join our next ALPHA course.

Maybe you are someone who has already experienced how amazing God’s love is in your own life! We would love for you to join us in sharing the good news of that experience both formally and informally. If you would like to learn more about how you can do that, please contact Andrew in our Evangelization office for more information at andrewm@stjoegold.org or 303-279-4464.

Every Christian is challenged, here and now, to be actively engaged in evangelization; indeed, anyone who has truly experienced God’s saving love does not need much time or lengthy training to go out and proclaim that love.
