Evangelization is the continuous process by which the Church strives to deepen the faith of those who
believe and bring the Good News to those who do not believe. It has two major purposes: Spiritual renewal,
by which those who profess faith in the Gospel of Jesus Christ are drawn to more clearly reflect that belief
in their actions, their relationships and their whole lives. Outreach, whereby individuals, parishes and
organizations seek ways of sharing the faith with others including Catholics who do not practice
their faith and those who do not practice any religion. The entire parish and the diocese share the
responsibility for evangelization. The Parish Pastoral Council should ef- fectively assist the pastor in
establishing the proper focus on evangelization as an vital area of mission in the parish.
