Ask A Catholic A Question is simple program of evangelization. "Evangelization", as defined by the Catechism of the Catholic Church, is “The proclamation of Christ and his Gospel by word and the testimony of life, in fulfillment of Christ’s command.” (CCC, 905)
You do not need to have all the answers, but merely a willingness to spread the Gospel of Christ. This is an easy and friendly way to help others learn more about Christ and the Church. Christ tells us that if we follow Him, there
are some things we must do. One of those things is to share the Good News about Him, His grace and salvation with others. “Come after me and I will make you fishers of men.” (Mark 1:17)
Pope Paul VI taught that the Church "exists in order to evangelize". We (you and I) are the Church. We must evangelize. In it's simplest form, evangelization is merely sharing your faith with someone else, by word or deed. It can be scary, but fear should not keep us from accomplishing what we are called to do.
“I am not ashamed of the Gospel, it is the power of God for the salvation of all who believe.” (Romans 1:16)
If you are interested in participating in Ask A Catholic A Question, then you must first attend a training session headed up by St. Mary's staff. This training will help equip you to dialogue not argue; to listen not just try to win; to know your limits and how to say "I don't know".

“All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.” (Matt 28:18-20)
