Center for World Catholicism & Intercultural Theology

CWCIT was founded at DePaul University in 2008 to produce research that will serve the Church and the academy. To fulfill this mission, it has paid special attention to the World Church that has emerged since the Second Vatican Council and its growth in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. While its focus has been on the present global communion of faith, it also attends to historical, theological, and cultural questions that will contribute to a fuller understanding of Catholicism and the dialogue of cultures today.
