Dear Friend,

February 2011

The mission of evangelization in our Church remains critical in bringing the Good News to our culture and our world. Since the establishment of the Pontifical Council for Promoting New Evangelization in September 2010, many diocese have expressed a desire to ensure this mission remains central in the life of Catholics. With our new name and logo, we will continue to serve you by providing the resources and programs that make this mission concrete. We always welcome your comments and hope you will let us know how we can best serve you.
