The Dicastery for Evangelization is presided over directly by the Roman Pontiff and is made up of two Sections, each of which is governed in his name and by his authority by a Pro-Prefect.

The Dicastery is at the service of the work of evangelization so that Christ, the light of the nations, may be known and witnessed in word and deed and His mystical Body, which is the Church, may be built up. It is competent for the fundamental questions of evangelization in the world and for the establishment, accompaniment, and support of the new local Churches, without prejudice to the competence of the Dicastery for the Eastern Churches.
