Building Multi-Cultural Realities in Faith Formation Programs - Morning Sessions @ St. Anne, Brentwood | Southampton | New York | United States

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. Our keynote is Sr. Ruth Bolarte. Diana Pizarro and Jennifer Menneci will facilitate the workshop.

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.

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 build 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?
