In the diversity of people we experience the gift of God, each in accordance with its own culture, the Church expresses her genuine catholicity and shows forth the “beauty of her varied face” (Pope Francis, The Joy of the Gospel).

We are glad that you are visiting our site!


The Office of Intercultural Ministry seeks to serve all cultural and ethnic communities located in the Archdiocese of Indianapolis. We have assisted many immigrants within our diocese to join in parish and diocesan activities that are respectful to their cultures.


This office works to promote an increased awareness of the cultural/ethnic strengths and diversity of the archdiocese, we assist parishes in developing services to meet multicultural needs, and offer intercultural competencies.
