The Mission

Atheists, agnostics, and believers alike must consider the question of God’s existence. This is precisely why everyone has a place and a home at St. Paul Inside the Walls: the Catholic Center for Evangelization at Bayley-Ellard.

For those who consider religion non-essential in their lives, we hope to begin friendly conversations.

For those who do not believe in God, we hope to share the beauty that abounds within these walls and in the hearts of all who call St. Paul Inside the Walls, “home”.

For those who doubt and may have drifted from the Church, we hope to listen attentively to their thoughts and experiences.

For those who practice the Catholic faith, we hope to deepen their identities in Christ by reflecting upon beauty, truth, and goodness and by providing them with the language of discipleship.

Within these walls, we are forging new paths in responding to the changing circumstances and conditions of our days. The methods and expressions employed allow the question of God to be placed in context through our sharing of personal experiences in seeking God.

Arising from the truth that all peoples must consider the question of God is the possibility that all, also, can find greater joy and hope. Everyone is welcome at St. Paul Inside the Walls, for the art of living, as taught by Christ, is the only means of possessing such true joy and everlasting hope.
