Catholics need to work together to form parish communities where every person, regardless of race, ethnicity or culture, has a place at the eucharistic table. Our series from partner Catholic News Service shows some practical considerations for building parishes as places of welcome for all.

After decades of cultural, ethnic and racial groups sharing parishes, we might ask how things are going.
Best practices in Hispanic ministry
With countless parishes in the United States seeing a growing number of immigrants, many ministers are unsure of what the best ways to integrate the old and new parishioners are.
Come, Holy Spirit: Black spirituality and the Catholic Church
Black Catholic spirituality has been fruitful in areas of evangelization, pastoral ministry, social justice, Christian initiation as well as community-building initiatives that respond to the particular needs of the black faithful and others seeking God.
