C21 Event: To Set the Captives Free: A Pastoral Response to Latino/a Incarceration

One out of every four Latino households in the U.S. are affected by the prison industrial complex in some way. Understanding that churches are called to set the captives free requires that we grapple with the realities of detention and deportation among our parish families to find a voice of liberation and solidarity in our communities. RSVP

American and Catholic in an Increasingly Hispanic Church

"Hispanics account for 71 percent of the growth of the Catholic population in the country since 1960...At the heart of the freshness and new energy that Hispanics add to the life of the Church in the United States are the people. Young people!" Hosffman Ospino article

Grace in Place of Grace

"In his documentary film Scenes from a Parish, James Rutenbeck chronicled four years (2003–2007) in the life of St. Patrick Parish in Lawrence, Massachusetts. Eight years after the conclusion of Rutenbeck’s filming, I regularly receive inquiries from people who have recently watched Scenes from a Parish for the first time, asking, “How are things going at St. Patrick’s these days?” " Rev. Paul O'Brien article
