AbstractMany Catholic religious orders have provinces in different countries. Crosscultural contacts have thus always been part of the life within these international orders. Globalisation has given new impetus to the processes of internationalisation withing religious orders. Over the last few decades many Asian, African or Latin-American members from religious orders have come to formerly mission-sending provinces to strengthen the rapidly diminishing ranks of the religious orders in Europe or North-America. This article deals with the complexities of forming multicultural religious communities, based on the experiences of the religious orders in the Netherlands. The process needed to establish fruitful inter- cultural dynamics within communities involve a real kenosis for all the people involved.
