Mestizo Catholicism (Indigenous Spirituality series)

Many Latin Americans are “Mestizo,” an intercultural mix of indigenous and European peoples and heritages.  A deep affection for Mary and the saints, traditions such as the altarcitos (home altars) and promesas, religious movements, all these and more are part of the unique way in which the Hispanic/Latino communities embrace the Catholic faith and seek a deeper union with God in their daily lives.

The day begins with check-in at 11:30am and continues with the mid-day meal from noon until 1:00pm and the presentation from 1:00pm until 3:00pm.
