What Does Evangelization Mean For Me?
The New Evangelization is a process in which we come to grow in a greater knowledge of our faith. In doing so, we are able to live out our faith in a greater way. Finally, by being a living witness to our faith in the world we will help others to draw closer to God and His Church. The New Evangelization is an opportunity, a pilgrimage (journey) to rediscover the joy and confidence of believing in our Lord and to enthusiastically profess that faith as a true encounter and relationship with Jesus Christ. Transmitting the faith means to create in every place and time the conditions which lead to his encounter between the person and Jesus Christ. Essentially, the New Evangelization will that will help all the youth as well as adults to come to know the faith, to live the faith out, and to be able to speak about the faith with confidence to invite people into the Church.

Built in 1896, and formerly known as St. George, this parish was once part of the Green Bay diocese. In 1967, a new building was built to accommodate those from both parishes of St. Fridolin of Glenbeulah (1865) (see pictures below) and members of St. George in Elkhart Lake. On July 1, 2001, St. Fridolin and St. George merged to become the parish now known as St. Thomas Aquinas. St. Fridolin is still maintained and can be utilized for special functions. It is located at 210 N. Dillingha.m., Glenbeulah, WI 53023.
