Description of Service
Evangelization is the foremost service that the Church can provide to every individual and to humanity as a whole, according to Pope John- Paul II. During the Year of Faith, Pope Francis declared: Let us remember that faith is not owned but shared. It follows that the Archdiocese of Saint Boniface wants to devote its efforts toward the new evangelization with the aim of proclaiming the Gospel to all those who do not know God’s love or who have not responded to God’s call.
Missionary proclamation is an invitation to persons who have not yet heard Christ’s call to become his disciples.
