Religious leaders to look at cultural diversity

Sister Teresa Maya, C.C.V.I. will facilitate the June gathering of religious leaders to look at cultural diversity.

On June 17 in Baltimore the NRVC is hosting a gathering of religious leaders to look at the reality of the cultural diversity in the U.S. Catholic Church and how best to respond.

The NRVC board concluded that the challenges and opportunities presented by the 2014 NRVC/CARA "Study on Cultural Diversity in Religious Life" needs a broad response beyond those in vocation ministry.

As a result, NRVC is hosting the June 17 gathering, which will represent the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops, the religious leadership conferences, the Religious Formation Conference , and the NRVC Cultural Diversity Committee. The day will be facilitated by Sister Teresa Maya, C.C.V.I., general superior of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word. Other guests include Sister Mary Johnson, SNDdeN; Dr. Arturo Chavez, president and CEO of Mexican American Catholic College; and Father David Songy, O.F.M. Cap, president of Saint Luke Institute.

The purpose of this gathering is to imagine ways that the various groups represented can collaborate in developing projects, symposia, workshops, and publications to assist religious institutes in dealing with the reality of a culturally diverse church.
