at Cultural Diversity Network Convocation
Sr. Verónica Méndez, RCD and Sr. Terry Rickard, OP participated in the Catholic Cultural Diversity Network Convocation held May 6-8 at the University of Notre Dame. The event was convened by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops through the Committee on Cultural Diversity in the Church. The event provided an opportunity for over 300 Church leaders--bishops, priests, religious, and laity--to dialogue with one another; exchange hopes and ideas; and tap the potential of the rich and growing diversity within the Church to enhance Catholic identity and promote evangelization.
