Webinar with Fr. Eduardo Fernandez, SJ (English)

April 17, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am


April 17, 2015 10:00 - 11:00 AM Pacific Time

Mexican American Catholics

According to recent statistics, the majority of young Catholics under the age of 18 are now Latino.  This webinar which is based on how best to minister to this population, will consist predominantly of a discussion of Fr. Eduardo Fernandez’ small book, Mexican American Catholics (Paulist Press).  As the participants prepare for the session, they should come ready to discuss three adult learning questions, mainly, “What was new for me?  What was reinforced?  and What questions remain?”  Of course, it is understood that they are reading the work through the lens of catechists who want to understand better not only this sector of their communities (most of the material being applicable to Latinos in general in the United States) but also other minority communities.
