Unity in Diversity: The New Immigration and the Challenge of a Multi-Cultural Church

There are over a million foreign born citizens are being added to the U.S. population every year. Over the past decade the foreign born population increased nearly four times as fast as the native born population and now exceeds thirty million people. Nearly half of these new arrivals are Catholic. They offer a whole new range of challenges and opportunities for the church in the U.S. Immigration experts and pastoral leaders discuss the impact of the new arrivals on church life, the shortage of English language classes in metropolitan areas, the pastoral challenges of foreign born priests, the need for language competent ministers, catechetical materials and other measures to help the church provide a welcoming presence.
