Racial and cultural justice resources

NRVC is committed to supporting interculturality and racial justice around the world and in religious life. We have many resources to assist those in vocation ministry in conducting vocation ministry that is inclusive and welcoming. For members, find articles under the heading "multicultural" in the HORIZON library. Also, immediately access Father Bryan Massingale's classic "Transformative love, passion for justice belong in vocation ministry." In addition, Catholic Theological Union has made these resources available: “We Belong to One Another” by  Sister Barbara Kraemer, O.S.F., Ph.D. and “Interculturality: Challenges and Opportunities for Ministry“  by  Michel Andraos, Ph.D.
