Many Faces, One Church: The Blessing and Challenge of Diversity

Quick Overview

The face of the Catholic Church in the U.S. is changing and will continue to be fashioned and enriched by newcomers, many of them immigrants. This transformation brings the blessing and challenge of diversity. Modeled on the love among Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, the Church is called to welcome and gather all people without exception. We are called to be a communion in diversity, not in uniformity. Dr. van Thanh Nguyen, associate professor at Catholic Theological Union, explains that seeking unity in diversity isn’t new to the Church. He shares about the experience of the early Christian community and finds in it a model of how we are called to respond to growing diversity in our Church today.

Timely and Terrific Review by Thomas Artz
The face of the American Catholic Church is yellow, brown, black and white. We celebrate Mass across the United States in dozens of languages every Sunday. Thank you, Father vanThanh Nguyen, for helping us see in a practical way how we all are one - united in Christ's love - when all people bring their national and ethnic heritage to enrich the Church.
