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.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
