Office of Asian Ministry

Purpose: The Office of Asian Ministry provides a channel for systematic communication, collaboration and coalition among the many different Asian communities and their organizations within the Diocese. We provide continued evangelization of Asian Catholics. In collaboration with the other ministries of the Diocese we provide ongoing training and education for lay leadership. The Office of Asian Ministry and the Diocese of Richmond provides the opportunity to listen to and respond to the strengths, challenges and needs of these diverse communities.

This Being Asian is best discovered and affirmed not in confrontation and opposition, but in the spirit of complementarity and harmony. In this framework of complementarity and harmony, the Church can communicate the Gospel in a way that is faithful both to her own tradition and to the Asian soul.
