04/07/2021

Today, almost 50% of Catholics in the United States are Hispanic/Latino and most of the growth of the Catholic Church in the United States is among the Latino communities. While growth is positive, these shifts also pose several evangelical and ministerial challenges, as the church must find ways to work through cultural and linguistic divides, to bring its laity together, and to find effective paths for bicultural evangelization.

In this light, the Lumen Christi Institute has organized an online Hispanic Theology Series, held Tuesday evenings throughout the spring, beginning April 13. This series surveys contributions to the Catholic intellectual tradition by Latino/a scholars, with topics ranging from Latino Christology, to a Latino theology of disability, to the quotidian devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe.

Join us Tuesday, April 13 for the first event in our series, with Prof. Hosffman Ospino (Boston College), "Teaching Catholic Doctrine en Español"

This series is made possible by a generous grant from the Our Sunday Visitor Institute and cosponsored by ACHTUS (Academy of Catholic Hispanic Theologians of the United States) , La Comunidad of Hispanic Scholars of Religion, Corazón Puro, the Collegium Institute for Catholic Thought & Culture, Hispanic Theological Initiative, Saint Benedict Institute, the Nova Forum for Catholic Thought, the Dominican University Ministry Program, The Hank Center for the Catholic Intellectual Heritage, the Óscar Romero Scholars Program at Catholic Theological Union, Chicago, Iskali, Commonweal Magazine, and America Media (America Magazine - The Jesuit Review).
