Overview

As the twenty-first century continues to unfold with giant steps, U.S. Catholicism experiences major transformations at various levels thanks to the Hispanic presence. In many parts of the country, especially in the South and the West, to speak of Hispanic ministry is to speak of Catholicism in general. Without a doubt, the Church s evangelizing work in this country and the vitality of Catholic communities will be strengthened in coming years as long as there is generous investment in Hispanic Catholics. In this book, theologians Hosffman Ospino, Elsie Miranda and Brett Hoover bring together pioneering voices reflecting on what many consider «urgent matters» in our day for Hispanic ministry and the overall U.S. Catholic experience. This collection of essays continues the important conversation that began in the previous work (Volume 1), Hispanic Ministry in the 21st Century: Present and Future (Convivium, 2010). Edited by Hosffman Ospino, Elsie M. Miranda and Brett Hoover.
