"The evangelization of America is not only a gift from the Lord; it is also a source of new responsibilities".

John Paul II, Ecclesia in America.


Our Mission

By encountering Christ and the transforming power of his death and resurrection, the John Paul II Center for the New Evangelization is a community of practicing disciples that calls adults to encounter Jesus, forms disciples through the sacramental life of the Church, and sends disciples to go and make new disciples at home, work and in the community.

The John Paul II Center services include:

  • Evangelization that invites a deeper relationship with Christ. Opportunities to grow in knowledge of Catholicism and programs to equip Catholics to witness to their faith
  • Ongoing Formation and support of Lay Ministers in the Church
  • Programs to prepare, support and strengthen Marriage and Family Life
  • Promotion of the Catholic Church's teaching on Human Sexuality/Natural Family Planning/ Respect Life and Social Justice
  • Support and Resources for Young Adults in their 20s and 30s, married and single
  • Campus Ministry at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and University of Wisconsin-Whitewater

To provide these services, the John Paul II Center has four main areas:

• Evangelization
• Dignity of the Human Person

Operational principles of the John Paul II Center include:

• At the foundation of everything we do is our relationship with Christ
