Welcoming is an important part of evangelization, Pope tells members of movement

Pope Francis received more than 5,000 members of the Parish Evangelizing Cells movement in audience on September 5 and emphasized the importance of welcoming others as part of evangelization.

Members of the movement, whose statutes were approved definitively by the Pontifical Council for the Laity earlier this year, gather in homes to read the Bible, intercede for others, and evangelize a parish from within.

“I encourage you to make the Eucharist the heart of your mission of evangelization, so that each cell is a Eucharistic community,” the Pope added.
