Latino Catholicism

Timothy Matovina

Princeton University Press

This concluding chapter considers how Latinos present a distinct agenda of core concerns within U.S. Catholicism. Many Euro-American Catholics have emphasized concerns such as liturgical reform, the role of the laity, dissent or obedience to sexual ethics and other church teaching, the proper exercise of authority, and the question of who is called to ordination. Conversely, Latinos have been more inclined to accentuate concerns such as funding for Hispanic ministry offices, youth initiatives, outreach efforts, and leadership training and formation programs. Although these efforts encompass attempts at reform in areas such as liturgy and participation in church leadership, they are primarily intended to equip the church to serve and accompany its Latino members in their faith and daily struggles.
