At the WCC assembly, delegates reaffirm mission, evangelism


A year after the Catholic Synod of Bishops met in Rome to reflect on the new evangelization, the 10th Assembly of the World Council of Churches affirmed the same topic.

Prepared by the Commission on World Mission and Evangelism in which the Catholic church is a full participant, the document, "Together Toward Life: Mission and Evangelism in Changing Landscapes," was unanimously approved as an official statement of the WCC by the central committee at its meeting in Greece in September 2012.
