Cultural Pluralism and Ethnic Heritage in a Catholic Dimension: Towards the Establishment of a Diocesan Office for Newcomers

This paper outlines several aspects of the establishment of a Diocesan Office for Newcomers. Concepts include the decision process for the office’s name, derived in an attempt to avoid labeling individuals with the word immigrant. The goals and functions (research, education, coordination), priorities, structure, budget, etc. of the new office are also outlined.
