"Evangelizing is in fact the grace and vocation proper to the Church, her deepest identity. She exists in order to evangelize, that is to say, in order to preach and teach, to be the channel of the gift of grace, to reconcile sinners with God, and to perpetuate Christ's sacrifice in the Mass, which is the memorial of His death and glorious resurrection."  (St. Paul VI, Evangelii Nuntiandi 14)

The Catholic Diocese of Arlington offers ongoing support to parishes and schools, helping pastors and their ministry leaders to clarify and strengthen the evangelizing mission of the Church in their local communities.
