Addressing Multi-Cultural Realities in Faith Formation Programs – Southampton
168 Hill St
A workshop for Catechists and Catechetical Leaders
Diocese of Rockville Centre Office of Faith Formation offers this workshop to assist Pastors, Deacons, Catechetical Leaders, Catechists and others involved in the ministry of faith formation as they address the changing cultural landscape in our Faith Formation Programs.
Sr. Ruth Bolarte, Director of Multi-Cultural Ministries in the Diocese of Metuchen, NJ, and a Sister Servant of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in Philadelphia will speak on how to address the varied cultures/families in parishes. Publishers will present their resources, each offering a short training on how their resources can best be used in the parish.
As we promote an understanding and appreciation for the rich cultural diversity and ethnic religious traditions which make up our Diocese, this workshop will equip our Faith Formation Leaders to address these multi-cultural realities, answering the most often asked questions such as:
- What do I need to know to approach a multi-cultural parish?
- How do I engage families/parishioners from different cultures?
