Why should we strive for such an attribute? Join Vince and Father Andy as they discuss this very important topic and discuss ways to be honest and transparent in today’s world

How will you evangelize?

In all that we do, we are to follow the command of Christ to “go into all the world and proclaim the Good News.” (Mk 16:15) We have set a goal for ourselves to continue this proclamation, and as we move forward, we want your input: we want to know how you plan to continue to proclaim the Gospel in all that you do.

Join Father Andy and Vince as they discuss different ways that they plan on evangelizing in this world as well as some ways that we all can try to continue to spread the Good News.
