According to the most recent U.S. census, 59% of Catholics in the United States are Hispanic/Latino(a). At the same time, a decreasing percentages of Hispanics stay Catholic as adults. This means it is essential for the Church to reach out with open hearts to welcome newcomers to Catholic parishes. It is time to implement changes in the way we evangelize and catechize within the Church. 

In this webinar panel discussion, leaders in Hispanic catechesis will discuss a wide variety of issues including:

Cultural norms to keep in mind

Devotional practices common among Hispanic Catholics

Reaching Hispanic youth and young adults

How to approach evangelization and catechesis differently with different cultures

Examples of effective ministries, programs, and processes existing in the Church today

Come join the discussion and walk away with new ideas to try in your own diocese of parish.
