NRVC sponsors symposium

On multiculturalism

Researcher Mary Gautier presents information from the NRVC study of multiculturalism in religious life.

On June 26 NRVC hosted a symposium on multiculturalism in religious life, held at the offices of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) in Washington, D.C. The invitation-only event focused on the 2014 NRVC study on this topic and featured the primary researcher, Dr. Mary Gautier, senior research associate at the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate, and a panel of newly professed religious from various ethnic groups.

Participants included approximately 50 representatives of national Catholic organizations, major superiors, and formators in the Washington, D.C. area.

NRVC extends its thanks to personnel with the USCCB, in particular the Secretariat for Clergy, Consecrated Life, and Vocations, for their gracious hospitality in assisting us in hosting this symposium.
