Catholic Hispanic Ministry Symposium held in Sierra Madre

Participants pray at the closing Mass of the National Symposium of Catholic Hispanic Ministry in Sierra Madre.

Archbishop José Gomez presided at the closing Mass of the 2014 National Symposium of Catholic Hispanic Ministry, hosted by Loyola Marymount University and held at Mater Dolorosa Passionist Retreat Center in Sierra Madre.

The three-day Symposium at Mater Dolorosa united seven universities, as well as ministries, publishers and Latino Catholic leaders "to write another chapter in the history of the Latino Catholic Church in the U.S. with our thoughtful work and passionate engagement."

The participants traveled to the Archdiocese of Los Angeles from throughout California, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Washington, Oregon, Illinois and Indiana to discuss Hispanic Ministry topics including education, immigration, and new and old media.
