The aim of this article is to seek an answer to the following question: Do religion teachers have the opportunity to learn and develop skills in the areas necessary to support refugees from Ukraine? If so, how should this be done? To address the issue, the problem of intercultural relations was first presented in a synthetic manner, based on the perspective of the socio-political conditions that underpinned educational initiatives for the development of intercultural competence by teachers of religion. An attempt was then made to define basic concepts such as multiculturalism, interculturalism, intercultural competence and intercultural competence, as directly related to teachers of religion. The next stage of the research directly referenced practice by defining the necessary forms and specific actions in developing the intercultural competence of teachers of religion. A descriptive method, one of the qualitative methods, was applied to answer the questions posed. This method was used to assess the state of intercultural competence of religion teachers in a Polish school. © 2024 Christian Education.
