Building an Intercultural Church: Why are intercultural competencies vital for the new evangelization?
Tuesday, May 24, 2022
Our Catholic community abounds with diversity. Our brothers and sisters represent different races, ethnicities, ages, physical and mental abilities, and socioeconomic classes.
Called by the New Evangelization to be evangelized and go evangelize, this diversity offers great opportunity as we seek to build our Catholic Church. But this calling is not without its challenges.
In Evangelii nuntiandi (1975), Pope Paul VI writes, “Evangelization loses much of its force and effectiveness if it does not take into consideration the actual people to whom it is addressed, if it does not use their language, their signs and symbols …”
In other words, carrying out the mission of the Church requires us to have intercultural competencies. Join us as we discuss this important topic.
