Alpha for Catholics
Alpha for Catholics is a practical tool that parishes use to inspire Catholic renewal, answer the call to the New Evangelization and the call of Christ and His Church to "go and make disciples of all nations." Alpha for Catholics is a practical introduction to creedal Christianity over a 10-week course. Unique in its adult learning approach, Alpha meets participants where they are, starting with their questions. Designed for those on the fringes of their faith and those outside the Church, Alpha creates a non-threatening environment of hospitality allowing people to explore the claims of Christ against the backdrop of our culture. Alpha provides an opportunity to encounter the love of God in a personal relationship through Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit. Alpha focuses on the kerygma and the basic tenants of Christianity.

Catholic Apostolate Center
The Catholic Apostolate Center, a ministry of the Society of the Catholic Apostolate (Pallottines) - Immaculate Conception Province, was founded in 2011 to respond to the needs of the Church by:
- developing, in collaboration with dioceses and other institutions and organizations, formation programs for the New Evangelization;
- assisting pastoral ministers in deepening collaboration with one another;
- providing formation and apostolic opportunities for members and collaborators of the Union of Catholic Apostolate.
The Center takes its inspiration from the spirituality of St. Vincent Pallotti and achieves its goals by hosting conferences, seminars, webinars, and presentations, and with online and print resources.
Catholics Come Home
Catholics Come Home, Inc. is an independent, non-profit Catholic apostolate that creates effective and compassionate media messages and broadcasts them nationally and internationally, in order to inspire, educate and evangelize inactive Catholics and others, and invite them to live a deeper faith in Jesus Christ, in accord with the Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church.
ChristLife | Catholic Ministry for Evangelization
ChristLife equips Catholics for the essential work of evangelization so that others might come to know personally the love of God through Jesus Christ, in the Holy Spirit, becoming his followers and members of the Church. ChristLife trains parishes and Catholic ministries, locally and nationally, how to evangelize. Their evangelization process has three components: Discovering Christ, Following Christ, and Sharing Christ, and a 7-session program for each component.
Dynamic Catholic, led by Matthew Kelly, seeks to re-energize the Catholic Church in America by developing world-class resources that inspire people to rediscover the genius of Catholicism. The main focus is on developing learning systems for each of the nine Catholic moments. Each Catholic Moment represents a huge opportunity to demonstrate the genius of Catholicism and lead people into a more dynamic relationship with God. Accomplishing this requires world-class learning systems that present the faith in engaging and inspiring ways.
Burning Hearts Disciples

Burning Hearts is committed to a ministry of accompaniment - which means everything they offer is customized and individualized to match your needs and the needs of your parish or school community. They can provide parish missions, offer ongoing discipleship formation, assist with planning for Alpha, and have experience working with many parish leadership teams on pastoral planning for evangelization.

St. Paul Street Evangelization
St. Paul Street Evangelization is a grassroots, non-profit Catholic evangelization organization, dedicated to responding to the mandate of Jesus to preach the Gospel to all nations by taking our Catholic Faith to the streets. We do this in a non-confrontational way, allowing the Holy Spirit to move in the hearts of those who witness our public Catholic presence. Christ’s call to evangelize was made to every Catholic Christian, and the Second Vatican Council reiterated this need, urging each of the baptized to bring the Gospel, found fully in the Catholic Church, to a culture that has largely reverted to paganism. As an on-the-street Catholic evangelization organization, St. Paul Street Evangelization provides an avenue for you to share the Person of Jesus Christ and the truth and beauty of the Catholic Faith with a hungry culture. St. Paul Street Evangelization provides the tools and resources for Catholics to engage the culture in a simple, non-confrontational method of evangelization which involves making themselves available to the public to answer questions about the faith and to pray with those who request it.
