Here is an excerpt from it:
'The Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis is pleased to announce that internationally known speaker and author Jeff Cavins has been appointed as the archdiocese’s Director of Evangelization.
Archdiocesan leaders say Cavins was a natural choice because of his deep love for Jesus Christ, his infectious enthusiasm, and his clear and engaging communication of the Catholic faith. The position was uniquely created in consideration of Cavins’ ongoing outside responsibilities.
“The Church exists to make the name of Jesus Christ known and loved”, said Archbishop John Nienstedt. “Jeff Cavins has dedicated his life to bringing others to God’s love through our Catholic faith. We are honored to have Jeff lead the evangelization efforts in this local Church; his calling reflects the core of our mission and his work has to date touched more than a million lives.”
“I am really excited to begin work right away in developing the new Office of Evangelization, which will oversee the archdiocese’s nationally recognized Rediscover: initiative and other faith outreach programs. There is no more important work than bringing the light of Christ to the world and bringing souls to the Lord,” said Cavins, who begins on March 17.'
