  • subtitles Product description

    In October 1986 the International Synod of Bishops met in Rome to discuss the vocation and mission of the Laity in the Church and in the World. It was well over twenty years since the Second Vatican Council promulgated its decree On the Apostolate of the Laity, known from its Latin opening words as 'Apostolicam Actuositatem (CTS Do 564). This present document offers a point of departure for further analysis, discussion and reflection, and calls for a large-scale consultation of the laity themselves (n.3) in the local churches during the preparatory phase.
