Founded in May 2012 by Steve Dawson, St. Paul Street Evangelization (SPSE) is a grassroots, non-profit organization, dedicated to responding to the Great Commission given by Jesus to preach the Gospel to all nations by taking the Catholic Faith to the people and onto the streets and meeting people were they are at. SPSE lives out Christ’s call to evangelize which was made to every Catholic Christian, and the Second Vatican Council reiterated this need, urging each of the baptized to bring the Gospel, found fully in the Catholic Church.
St. Paul Street Evangelization provides the tools and resources for Catholics to actively and passionately engage the culture in a simple, non-confrontational method of evangelization. This method involves members making themselves available to the public to answer questions about the faith and to pray with those who request it in a loving and respectful manner all the while sharing the faith. SPSE has had tremendous growth and now has teams throughout the United States and even in such wide flung locations as the Philippines and Australia.
