The United States has the third largest Catholic population in world, largely because of its growing Latino population. Latino Catholicism represents a diversity of cultures and traditions. At the MCC Annual Assembly a workshop will be offered that explores this rich faith heritage that has a deep devotion to Mary, a strong family unit and a vibrant spirituality.
In this workshop F. Javier Orozco, Director of Hispanic Ministry for the Archdiocese of St. Louis; Sharon Weidelman, Director of Family Life Ministries in the Springfield-Cape Girardeau Diocese; and Fr. Daniel Robles, Pastor from St. Eustachius Catholic Church in Portageville, will explore the richness of Latino Catholicism and discuss practical ways to engage Latino Catholics in our parish communities and local churches. This enlightening workshop is a must see!
