“Intercultural Competence for Pastoral Musicians”
PARTICIPANTS MUST REGISTER FOR THE EVENT! Link is at website below.
Co-sponsored by our local Raleigh chapter of the National Association of Pastoral Musicians (NPM) As members of the Body of Christ, we are called to love one another. Yet conflicts may arise between different cultural groups at parish, diocesan and/or national levels. After setting a theological foundation, this seminar presents a primer on cultural dynamics in parish settings. Pastoral methods and tools are drawn from the program Building Intercultural Competence for Ministers by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. Topics of interests include: What is intercultural competence?; parameters for interacting with other cultural groups; conducting meetings with differing cultures; leadership styles and responses to complex issues; in-group and out-group dynamics; understanding and processing racism; spirituality for intercultural ministry and reconciliation; and ecclesial integration and inclusion versus assimilation.
