Pope John Paul 2 Society for Evangelism
"There are approximately 300 million people living in the United States of America with 69 million identifying themselves as Catholic. It has been estimated that only 19% of those who identify themselves as Catholic (about 13 million) are active, by that I mean they attend Mass at least weekly.
If every Catholic would win one convert each year the entire nation would be Catholic in less than three years. Obviously, that is not going to happen. Yet, if only one percent of the U.S. Catholic population (69,000) were to bring just one person into the Church each year we would gain over 1.1 million new Catholics over the next five years. That goal is achievable.
The immediate goal of the Pope John Paul II Society of Evangelists is to recruit 69,000 members, who are committed to winning at least one soul for Christ and His Church each year. All baptized Catholics who are fourteen years of age or older, who are in complete harmony with all the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church and the Magisterium, are eligible to become members. There are no fees or dues of any kind."
"I sense that the moment has come to commit all of the Church's energies to a new evangelization and to the mission ad gentes. No believer in Christ, no institution of the Church can avoid this supreme duty: to proclaim Christ to all peoples."
–Pope John Paul II, Mission of the Redeemer, 3
