Paulist Father John Hurley is launching a timely national initiative for the Paulists, New Evangelization Strategies which will be based in downtown San Francisco at one of the oldest Paulist foundations in the United States, Old Saint Mary's Cathedral.  Father Hurley will serve as a missionary and consultant to pastoral leaders and others in keeping ministry mission focused with the joy of the Gospel.  This initiative is a response to Pope Francis' Apostolic Exhortation, Evangelii Gaudium/The Joy of the Gospel where he says, "I invite everyone to be bold and creative in this task of rethinking the goals, structures, style and methods of evangelization in their respective communities." Father Hurley hopes to take up residence in San Francisco in late June, 2014.
