Robert Schreiter, C.PP.S.
~ Vatican Council II Professor of Theology, Catholic Theological Union
~ Author of "Constructing Local Theologies"

In this plenary address for the "Catholics in Diaspora" portion of World Catholicism Week, Fr. Schreiter explores what happens to the religious life of communities who are uprooted & resettled in new and (for them) strange places. He looks at the transformations of immigrant religious communities, both in their own faith and the impact they have on their home & new environments.
