"This report is the result of a Diocesan survey concerning multicultural and ethnic ministry in general, and the `No Longer Strangers' project specifically, conducted in June 2000. ..... The purpose of this evaluation is to help us assess what we have accomplished in the past 5 years, and to assist us to develop our vision and goals for the future. This report is divided into two sections. The first includes an introduction, a theological reflection and our recommendations to the Diocese. In the second section, the respondents' views are recounted, first on multicultural ministry in the Diocese and then on the NLS [No Longer Strangers] project. Each of these parts is followed by comments from the author. Quotations from the respondents and the author's own comments are also included in boxes throughout the report." -- Preface, p. 1.
Cover letter laid in with report, dated 9 February 2001, and signed by Ann R. Keating, Director of Community Ministries, says "This report is a stirring invitation to the Church to shift to a new vision, a new paradigm. We must not be `survivalist' but we must reach out to others, especially to minorities in our midst; to open the doors wide for all. The report gives us specific suggestions about how we might do this."
