Synopsis: Designed for both ordained and lay ministers at the diocesan and parish levels, this document challenges us to prepare to receive newcomers with a genuine spirit of welcome.
From the Back Cover: "Unity in diversity is the vision that we bishops, as pastors of the Church in the United States, offer to our people as they welcome the new immigrants and refugees who come to our shores. . . . This diversity of ethnicity, education, and social class challenges us as pastors to welcome these new immigrants and help them join our communities in ways that are respectful of their cultures and in ways that mutually enrich the immigrants and the receiving Church." Designed for both ordained and lay ministers at the diocesan and parish levels, this new document from the U.S. bishops challenges us to prepare to receive newcomers with a genuine spirit of welcome that provides a bridge for them to cross from one culture into another. Sidebars interspersed through the text provide examples of successful programs throughout this country. This publication is also available in Spanish: No. 5-848, 96 pp. (est.).
