As the Hispanic population in California and Nevada continues to grow, the Regional Summer Seminar on Formation for Hispanic Ministry seeks to be a space of encounter, enrichment, study, prayer, consultation, and networking that gathers the directors and representatives of the formation programs of three ecclesial groups:
- Archdioceses and dioceses
- Catholic universities
- Independent ministry institutions
The Seminar, an initiative of the LMU Center for Religion and Spirituality, is coordinated by a steering committee with the support of the bishops of California and Nevada. Currently, the Seminar is supported by the generous grant of an anonymous foundation. Haga clic aquí para leer en español.
