What is Ad Gentes?

The term "Ad Gentes" translates to "To the Nations," echoing the missionary spirit of the Church. Our Ad Gentes Drive-Thru Prayer Event is inspired by this spirit, as we aim to reach out to our local community with the love and compassion of Christ. It is an opportunity for us to come together as one body, sharing the gifts of prayer and intercession with all who seek it.
