Catolicos MexicoamericanosPresentación de libro: Catolicos Mexicoamericanos por Eduardo C. Fernández, SJ

Martes, febrero 27, 2024 ✦ 7:00-8:00 pm Hora estándar del Pacífico ✦ en línea ✦ Flyer

Únase al Padre Eduardo C. Fernández, SJ, mientras analiza su libro Católicos Mexicoamericanos (Paulist Press, 2023).

"Este libro, que apareció inicialmente en inglés en 2007, pretende ser una introducción al ministerio con los mexicanos y mexicoamericanos y entre los mismos.... Para producir esta versión revisada en español, retomé y actualicé la obra anterior, no solamente a la luz del Censo de los EEUU de 2020, sino también para incorporar material bibliográfico que ha salido de manera más reciente. He retenido la sabiduría oral de los agentes de pastoral, entre ellos hombres y mujeres laicos, mujeres religiosas y sacerdotes, cosechada de horas de entrevistas, porque han pasado la prueba del tiempo a lo largo de estos años.” (del Prefacio)
