This doctoral-level seminar is an opportunity to engage critically in conversation on key topics associated with Hispanic Ministry in the context of the Catholic Church in the United States. About 45% of all Catholics in the U.S. self-identify as Hispanic. This is a profoundly diverse and complex community that demands multiple approaches to ministerial accompaniment. Students in this seminar will read current research on conversations that aim at envisioning creative approaches to Hispanic Ministry. At the same time, all participants in the seminar are expected to be engaged in research activity, either exploring issues of personal interest or preparing to write research-based works (e.g., dissertations, thesis, research papers) and contribute to class conversations in light of their findings and insights.
