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.

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