The Archdiocese of Philadelphia’s Office for Hispanic Catholics will host Dr. Hosffman Ospino, associate professor of Hispanic ministry and religious education at Boston College, for his talk “Hispanic Community in Catholic Parishes” on Friday, Feb. 27 from 2 to 4 p.m. in the parish hall of the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul, Philadelphia.
The event will also take place in Spanish at Holy Innocents Parish, Philadelphia, on Saturday, Feb. 28.
About a quarter of all Catholic parishes in the United States serve Spanish-speaking Catholics and their families directly. This is part of a growing trend transforming the Catholic experience in this country.
The program is designed for people and parishes who have not yet worked with Hispanic ministry and may be considering how to serve the Hispanic community in their area. It is also ideal for parishes that may want to determine the next step in the development of Hispanic ministry.
Ospino’s research concentrates on the dialogue between theology and culture. He has lectured nationally and internationally on these topics.
The suggested donation is $10, and lunch is included with the program.
