A&C Lecture 6: The Church Ad Extra

Dr. Richard DeClue

October 18, 2022


As the sacrament of salvation, the Church, by her very nature, is called to unite as many people to Christ as possible, for their sake. In the sixth and final lecture, Dr. Richard DeClue discusses the Church ad extra, that is, “toward the outside.” In particular, he explores what Vatican II teaches about dialogue, both with other Christians (ecumenism) and with non-Christians (interreligious dialogue), and what it teaches about missionary activity.

We hope you enjoy this series. You can learn more about the Catholic faith through courses, forums, and community at the Word on Fire Institute. Hope to see you inside!
