.- The Knights of Columbus' Catholic Information Service will launch a series of booklets and online materials on the task of re-evangelizing formerly Christian societies.

“Pope Benedict XVI has made the New Evangelization a priority,” said Supreme Knight Carl Anderson on Nov. 29.

“It is our hope,” he added, that the new series “will help Catholics to learn about their faith in a way that allows them to participate first hand in the Church’s mission of the New Evangelization.”

The New Evangelization Series will feature online content and booklets focused on issues related to evangelizing modern culture and will draw from the writings of Popes Benedict XVI and Blessed John Paul II.

Catholic Information Service has printed and distributed millions of booklets over the last 60 years. The group's previous two series on the Catechism and faith topics contain more than 75 booklets with many available in podcast and PDF format.
 
Michelle Borras, Ph.D., the newly appointed director of Catholic Information Service, will serve as general editor of the new series.

In their Nov. 29 announcement, the Knights of Columbus noted that the term “New Evangelization” was first used by Blessed Pope John Paul II early in his pontificate in Poland in 1979. The late pontiff often returned to this theme in his speeches and writing much like his successor, Pope Benedict XVI. 

Pope Benedict has organized a synod in October of 2012 which will gather bishops from around the world in Rome to discuss efforts on the New Evangelization.
