Bringing donors and missionaries together for the New Evangelisation in Ireland

Our key aim as an organisation is to see that genuine Catholic Evangelisation Causes in Ireland will be adequately financed to realise their full potential. Our purpose is to bring donors and missionaries together for the New Evangelisation in Ireland.


About Us

The New Evangelisation Trust is a zero running costs charity, sponsored by a small group of supporters, which provides a free service of matching donors with Evangelisation Causes in Ireland.

The Church here as we all know has been going through much difficulty and decline, even to the point of once again becoming a mission territory. More than ever before there is great need for a fresh proclamation of the Gospel into all areas of public and private life. On the positive side it is great to see the many committed Catholic, lay, religious and clergy alike who are giving their lives to the service of the Gospel. These are the "Home Missionaries" that Ireland so urgently needs. However it is unfortunate that inadequate finance continues to hinder much good work from flourishing to its full potential. And on the other hand there are generous and well intentioned donors who want to share in this new mission yet do not know where best to direct their finances. It is to these two needs that The Evangelisation Trust directs its attention by the seeking, managing and disbursing of funds between donors and Ireland’s New Missionaries.

Our fundraising comes from two main sources: regular donations and Wills. In relation to Wills made in favour of The New Evangelisation Trust we give people the peace of mind of knowing that, where their parting wish is the Evangelisation of Ireland, that they have left the disbursement of their earthly assets in reliable hands. In this way it can be said that donors become missionaries too, because they become an integral part of the missionaries’ work in the field!

Entrusted to the Patronage of St Joseph, our work is carried out in a spirit of prayer, and we continue to pray for all of our donors and the work of the new missionaries in Ireland.
