St. Vincent Pallotti’s wish was to awaken apostolic vocations among all states of the Church, so that all would know God’s Infinite Love. We need not only those who preach the Gospel in Church, but due to the world’s increasing secularization, we need a host of formators who will be able to teach others how to preach Jesus in an ever-changing world.
The Pallottine School of the New Evangelization, which was officially established on June 16, 2011, tries to fulfill Pallotti’s desires and responds to the call of St. John Paul II to take up the New Evangelization. The school was initiated by Fr. Krzysztof Kralka SAC at the Pallottine Seminary in Oltarzew in 2007. In the first phase of its existence, the environment gathered Pallottine seminarians and a few lay people who had the experience of participating in evangelization courses and working in teams conducting courses.
When Fr. Krzysztof Kralka SAC came to Lublin, he began the formation of new people and entire communities willing to create the School of New Evangelization; during which more than 2,000 people were formed for evangelization.
The basic tool of the work of the Pallottine School of New Evangelization ins the Pastoral Program of St. Andrew created in Mexico by H. Prado Flores. It presents the program of formation of evangelizers and formators of evangelizers divided in three stages:
