Today every parish is composed of a diversity of cultural groups based on ethnicities, races, generations, social classes, ideologies, etc. How do we balance our unity in Christ in the context of such diversity while welcoming all around the table?
Join us for a sequence of dynamic presentations, music, and prayer as we explore how we may better celebrate our liturgies in increasingly diverse communities. Topics will include: intercultural competence in liturgical ministry; parameters for interacting with other cultural groups; leadership styles and approaches; inter-cultural music-making; and ecclesial integration versus assimilation. We will be renewed in spirit, heart, and voice!
