St. Paul Street Evangelization

Saint Paul Street Evangelization (https://streetevangelization.com/ ) is part of the Saint Paul Evangelization Institute, an apostolate dedicated to empowering Catholics to take their faith to the streets and offer it in love and peace. One of SPSE's regional missionaries, Dr. Deb McManimon (St. Joseph's Church in Owatonna), is well-known to many parishes and organizations in the diocese as a speaker on how to evangelize in your community, your family, and your parish. Teams in the diocese train for this work and bring the joy of the Gospel to public places in a warm, inviting, and non-confrontational manner to all they meet. Teams have offered "prayer stations" and "ask a priest" stations at college campuses, in public parks near the Mayo Clinic, at farmer's markets, county fairs, in front of Walmart, and more.
