Testimonials

As a U.S. Hispanic woman, I feel that FCH gives me the opportunity to voice my concerns as a member and it empowers me as a Hispanic in a leadership position.
Maria Cruz CordobaDirector of the Office of Religious Education, Archdiocese of Santa Fe
The Church in the United States must have a space where religious educators and other pastoral leaders come together on a regular basis to reflect about how catechesis takes place in light of the Hispanic Catholic experience. FCH is without a doubt that space —essential to actualize the mission of NCCL in our day— where ideas are shared, catechetical matters are critically engaged, and a fresher vision for the future of religious education in an increasingly Hispanic Church is forged.
Hosffman Ospino, PhDBoston College
Los catequistas Hispanos necesitamos una organización para poder compartir. ¿Qué podemos compartir? Pues, nuestras metas, logros, éxitos, retos y el cómo aprendemos en el camino. FCH es un lugar a donde acudir y encontrar una red de personas con quien se comparte lo que llevo a cabo en las sesiones de catequesis.
