Dear Friend,

February 2010

Thank you for receiving Evangelization Exchange.  PNCEA has a long history with this communications vehicle and this issue brings yet another turn.  We are grateful for Sr. Susan Wolf’s great service in Evangelization Exchange and wish her every blessing as she undertakes a new ministry.  Fr. Tony Krisak will pull items together which we hope will be worth your while.  Our new web platform should add a little more zip and sparkle to things.  And thank you, most of all, for your involvement in evangelization which seems more and more a forgotten, though essential, mission of the Church.  Let’s, together, keep it alive. 

Peace.  Fr. Frank
