The ministry of evangelization serves to deepen faith internally and to enable the intentional ministry of outreach to individuals and communities. These purposes are not mutually exclusive. They are interactive and supportive. The means to fulfill our mandate comes through providing services and programs, including liturgies, workshops, retreats and pastoral care.

Fr. Art Cavitt is the scheduled celebrant for the Eucharistic celebrations held every 1st Wednesday of the month at 8:15 a.m. in St. Elizabeth, Mother of John the Baptist Catholic Church (adjacent to the Center). Fr. Cavitt is also the pastor of St. Nicholas Catholic Parish in downtown St. Louis. His regular schedule there can be accessed at

Evangelization Workshops
Workshops enhancing internal spirituality and the "how to" of evangelization outreach are offered by St. Charles Lwanga Center. For more information, email

The Center offers adults a spiritual experience entitled the Crossroads Retreat. It is currently structured as a one-day weekend retreat for busy people. We also offered tailored retreats and days of reflections at the Center or other mutually agreed location. For more information, email

Pastoral Care
We provide pastoral care and longer-term spiritual direction through appointments and “walk-ins” (contingent upon availability) for individuals as support on their journey of faith. This helps individuals to see God working in their lives as motivation to continually evangelize and be evangelized.
