This week on Wednesday evening at 7:00, we have the privilege of hearing an expert on the “New Evangelization” speaking right here at St. John as part of our 175th Anniversary Series. We will be welcoming Fr. Joshua Wagner, a Columbus pastor with years of experience in this field, to share with us what exactly the “New Evangelization” is. Does it mean the same as “proselytism” or “Bible thumping”? (No.) What exactly does it mean, then, to “evangelize”? How can a parish like St. John welcome back those who have fallen away from the flock? How can we minister to our existing children to keep them in the faith by their own living experience of Jesus Christ? How can we help the parish to grow in the years to come? These are some of the questions that Fr. Wagner will help us learn about. So, I hope all will be able to come to learn more about the “New Evangelization” that has been talked about so much in recent years and is currently sweeping the American Church. Don’t miss out. Come this Wednesday evening!
