Outreach and Cultural Diversity


The Office of Outreach and Cultural Diversity supports the pastoral care of specific groups within the Archdiocese.  The website for Outreach and Cultural Diversity is www.catholicculturaldiversity.com.  The website for the Deaf Apostolate is www.deafcatholic.org.

The Outreach Ministry includes the Office for Persons with Disabilities, Prison Ministries and the Airport/Seaport Chaplaincy.

The Cultural Diversity Ministry represents all Catholic ethnic/cultural communities in the archdiocese.   This ministry is a resource for parishes, archdiocesan agencies and the cultural communities themselves for education and communication, fostering integration of the various cultures and faith expressions into the Church of Boston. The Offices of Black Catholics and the Deaf Apostolate are part of this ministry.

Please see our office websites for more information on the specific communities.
