B-11 Multicultural Catechesis: What, Why, How
All people have culture, and God works through every culture. This workshop will demonstrate the importance of multiculturalism for the ministry of catechesis. It will also propose practical strategies for catechetical ministers to plan and develop their faith formation efforts that reflect the incredible abundance of the Catholic faith tradition and the God-given dignity of the people they serve.
