Evangelization and Propagation of Faith
The goal of evangelization today is, as always, the transmission of the Christian Faith. This task primarily concerns communities of Jesus’ disciples which are organized into particular Churches, diocesan andeparchial, whose worshippers gather regularly for liturgical celebrations, hear the Word of God, celebrate the sacraments–especially the Eucharist–and look to pass on the treasure of faith to the members of their families, communities and parishes. They accomplish this task by proclaiming and bearing witness to the Christian life through the catecumenate, catechesis and works of charity.
