February 16, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm EST| $25.00 – $30.00
With “catholic,” or universal, as one of the marks of the Church that we profess every Sunday at Mass, how can a community of disciples foster and support that universality? In this session, Dr. Camille Brown Privette will share the importance of cultural diversity in the Church and give practical advice to cultivate that diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging in your sphere of influence.
For the first time, you can attend GIVEN Academy either online or in-person at the Saint John Paul II National Shrine in Washington, DC! In-person attendance includes early access to the Shrine, prayer with the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy and veneration of Saint John Paul II’s relic, and a networking reception before the presentation. Both in-person and online attendance include Q&A with Dr. Brown Privette, a resource notebook on the presentation topic, and access to the session recording after attending.
