​What is the New Evangelization?
Evangelizing means brining the Good News of Jesus into every human situation and seeking to convert individuals and society by the divine power of the Gospel itself.

Today, the Church calls us to a "New Evangelization" with a renewed emphasis on a personal encounter with the person of Jesus, which brings peace and joy.

The "newness" of Evangelization is a call to Catholics to reignite their enthusiasm and practice of the faith.  We want every Catholic to return to the fullness of the sacramental life. If you are interested in finding out how you can share your faith with others to bring all into a fullness of new life, join us!

The Evangelization Committee meets on the third Wednesday of each month at 6:30 pm.

We are committed to the Church's mission to embrace and engage the New Evangelization as we work to build the St. Regis community. By using our time, talent, and treasure, we are sharing the Good News of Christ!

Some of our ministries include:
  • "Living Prayer Book"
  • Live Testimony
  • Prayer & Study Programs

A few days before Thanksgiving 2014, author Chris Stepien found himself in an oncologist's office. But he wasn't the patient. Stepien's wife, Ellen, was just beginning her battle with aggressive breast cancer. That day, while listening to the oncologist's treatment strategy, Stepien began writing Dying to Be Happy: Discovering the Truth About Life.

In the pages of this book, a brush with a life-threatening disease sparks a frank discussion on mortality. The author explores the prospects of embracing death on a daily basis versus denying it. He encourages readers to follow the advice of Jesus Christ: always be ready for the end of life.
