Easter Evangelists commit to:
1. Invite someone to Mass on Easter Sunday (or Saturday)
2. Share why Easter is important to them.
The purpose of the Easter Evangelist campaign is to gather a dedicated community of disciples throughout the world in a common goal to share the good news of the Resurrection.
First, pray about it. Ask God to lead you to the person who needs that invitation the most.
Invite your friends, coworkers, and acquaintances. Invite family members who haven’t been to church in a while. Invite people who you know are in need of healing but don’t know where to get it.
You won’t know for sure unless you try. Maybe they will say no. Maybe they will come, but be unable to see the grace before them. Nevertheless, Easter is an opportunity to share the healing power of Christ’s Resurrection. You are sowing seeds. These seeds (your invitations) may or may not grow into anything or they may be the key turning point in a person's faith journey. Leave that up to God and the power of the Holy Spirit.
How should I invite them?
Just ask. It’s really that simple. Don’t let the fear of rejection get in the way. Ask them if they are planning to go to Mass. If not, tell them where and when they can go. Send them a reminder later by email or text if they were interested. If they take you up on the invitation, offer to go with them to Mass. This will help remove any feelings of fear or uncertainty they might have about going to church.
If you join this group, we will send you scripts and specific ways to extend invitations.
Tell them about this group. Invite them to invite others to Easter masses. Tell them to go to easterevangelist.com to learn more. The only way we will reach our goal is if you invite someone to invite others.
