Cultural Diversity Apostolate

The Cultural Diversity Apostolate was formed as a response to the Study on Cultural Diversity Displays Catholic Church’s Growing Multicultural Parish Population conducted by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB).

Culturally diverse parishes are the fastest growing type of parish in the United States, according to a report on Cultural Diversity in Catholic parishes, presented by Archbishop Gustavo García-Siller of San Antonio, chairman of the U.S. Bishops’ Committee on Cultural Diversity in the Church.

Archbishop Garcia-Siller, asked the bishops to consider how the data speaks to their local realities and how these findings may affect the way local dioceses plan, set priorities and allocate resources for the continuation of the mission of the Church. He reminded them of Pope Francis’ call to a pastoral conversion and to put the entire church in a “permanent state of mission.”
