Here is a great example of a Catholic Approach to evangelization. I stumbled on The Reason For Our Hope Foundation when I was working on my former parish's Council for Apostolic Formation and Evangelization (the Cafeteria may, in fact, be closed . . .but the CAFE is open for business!).
Here's what the foundation writes about itself:
The Reason For Our Hope Foundation was founded by Fr. Larry Richards in answer to 1 Peter 3:15: “Always be ready to give an explanation to anyone who asks you for a reason for your hope.” The purpose of The Reason For Our Hope Foundation is to fulfill the command of Christ to “go and make disciples of all nations” (Matt. 16:28). The mission of the Foundation is to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ and His Church through various multimedia resources and to make available Catholic speakers who are effective instruments of this evangelization. The Foundation also helps various charities that make real the Gospel of Jesus Christ. You can help us fulfill God’s will by contacting us.
Please take a look at their website. They are a fantastic example of the New Evangelization.
