tHE CHURCH IS MULTICULTURAL

“In a Church that goes forth, the ecclesial integration of many cultures into the one Body of Christ, united by faith and mission is essential. Diversity of language, culture, spirituality, needs, and gifts are not an obstacle to unity, but rather they can and should enrich the body, with solidarity between groups and support for all.”

Diversity and Inclusion in Youth Ministry (Proclaim)

Over the years, our diocesan parishes have become increasingly more diverse. As with all things, we can look to Jesus as a model for how to become more inclusive. Reflect on the Catholic perspective on “diversity” and “inclusivity” and explore how your ministry can become more inclusive and welcoming.

If a teen from such a culture is engaged in our ministries, it is imperative that we also know how to engage that teen entire family – the teen, parents, younger siblings, grandparents, and even extended family. Explore the why and how in this session.
