The New Evangelization. When we know our faith, love our faith, and live our faith, we want to share our faith with others. Evangelization is how we invite others to experience the difference that Christ has made in our lives, so they can experience it themselves in their own lives.
Here are some helpful resources for evangelization. We invite you to take the ChristLife course which spiritually prepares us for evangelization. For more information, please contact us at ChristLife@StDaniel.org. In the meantime, please check out the various resources on this webpage.

Fidelity for Evangelization

Critical Grace Theory: Please click here to discover how God’s grace is so critical to understanding our human predicament and our need for salvation in Jesus Christ. Systemic atheism, rampant corruption, and unbridled narcissism are not the last word. Christ is the saving Word and our final revelation.

To Judge or Not to Judge: Please click here to evaluate your ironic judgment about not judging. How did you arrive at that judgment about judgment? Since we cannot avoid make judgments, we ought to judge well — that is, we should judge by God’s standards rather than by human standards.
