Ad Gentes

The decree Ad Gentes treats the “Mission Activity of the Church.” We looked at this document in a series of posts in the Spring of 2007. As with most other Vatican II postings, individual essays were titled by document and article number. On this summary page, we’ll give a very brief summation of each section to supplement the outline as given on the Vatican web page.

Article 1: Christian Witness

Article 2: Preaching the Gospel and Gathering together the People of God
