Ahead of the Fifth Encuentro, a leading Hispanic expert warns Latinos may leave the U.S. Church in mass numbers if they aren’t embraced by the rest of the Church.
Hosffman Ospino of Boston College reminds American Catholics “that 60 percent of U.S. Catholics younger than eighteen are Hispanic. This is not a number that we can afford to ignore as a church! If we do the math, just in a few years, the majority of Catholics in the United States will share a Hispanic background. They will be writing the next chapter of the history of U.S. Catholicism, but they will not—and should not—do it alone.”
