Hispanic Ministry in the 21st Century

Academics / Office of Continuing Education for Ministry / Hispanic Ministry in the 21st Century

 

The Hispanic Ministry in the 21st Century program is an intense two-week introduction to Hispanic Ministry. The program is an orientation to the culture, history, and faith expressions of Mexican Americans. The course's specific focus on the Mexican American experience is not exclusive; rather, it provides a comprehensive framework that can be used as a pattern for understanding other cultures. The Hispanic Ministry in the 21st Century program deepens appreciation of the multicultural diversity in society and guides both Hispanics and non-Hispanics through a process of understanding the complexities of ministry in Hispanic communities today.

 

This course is especially recommended for anyone working or desiring to work in Hispanic settings in the United States .

 

The adult-learning model of the Hispanic Ministry in the 21st Century program includes seminars, time for reflection, group discussions, lectures, and field trips in San Antonio and to the Texas-Mexico border region.

 

 

 

Some of the topics included in the program are:

  • The Heart of Multiculturalism
  • History, Guiding Values and Principles of Hispanic Ministry
  • History of the Mexican American Experience
  • Our Lady of Guadalupe
  • Scripture from the Hispanic Perspective
  • Faith Expressions
  • Immigration Issues
  • Family and Youth
