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?
