Discussion with Gordy Demarais – Saint Paul’s Outreach
Recently, I had a chance to speak with Gordy Demarais, founder and Executive Director of Saint Paul’s Outreach, an exuberant effort of the New Evangelization that actively invites college students to a life of Christian discipleship, in the fullness of the Catholic Church. Over the past 28 years, thousands of college students have been drawn into Jesus Christ and today thousands of those same Saint Paul’s Outreach alumni have moved out into active lives of faith, building parishes across the country.
Saint Paul’s Outreach has also founded Men on a Mission, a monthly breakfast that draws hundreds of men together for breakfast, prayer and to hear inspiring Catholic speakers. Gordy holds a Masters of Arts degree in theology from the Saint Paul’s Seminary and is an instructor in the Deaconate formation program in the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis. He is a leader and one of the co‑founders of the Community of Christ the Redeemer, an association of lay faithful in the archdiocese and is also a Board member of Net Ministries.
