Inspiring Catholics

The New Evangelization Summit

An international event that will inspire thousands of Catholics to be engaged in the New Evangelization

This two day conference will bring together speakers who are leaders in the New Evangelization to provide inspiration, encouragement, training, practical wisdom and resources on how Catholics can effectively evangelize. All Catholics – pastors, missionaries, lay ministers, and the lay faithful – will benefit immensely from this powerful opportunity to be further equipped in the fundamental mission of the Church.

The annual NES will be held in Ottawa and streamed to 30 host-sites. The broadcasting of the event will provide a way for Catholics from around North America to participate in the Summit. Thus approximately 5000 like minded Catholics from across the continent will be united in one goal – to be formed as evangelists and be part of a network of Catholic evangelists.

Become a Host Site

Invite your attendees to your parish, where you can stream the event in HD

We're looking for parishes interested in becoming a host satellite site for the New Evangelization Summit. We believe that every person has the capability to become an evangelist and can help others know Christ. We also believe that everyone has a personal and communal call to respond to the invitation of the last three popes – to partake in the New Evangelization. Hosting the New Evangelization Summit at your parish will allow your parishioners to become actively involved in the New Evangelization. Through your participation in the NES, you will help to inspire, equip, and connect Catholics - empowering them to reach many who are away from Christ.

By hosting the Summit, you will:

  • Create and encourage a culture of evangelization in your church
  • Establish a common vision and language for evangelization within your parish
  • Develop and inspire your staff, volunteers and parishioners
  • Provide networking opportunities with other leaders and parishioners
  • You will be responding to the call issued by the last three popes—to partake in the New Evangelization and live out the Church's missionary call

"Invite everyone to be bold and creative in this task of rethinking the goals, structures, style and methods of evangelization in their respective communities."
Pope Francis
