Catholics schools have served as a major resource to help immigrant communities in the United States promote Catholic identity and social mobility. At a time when nearly 60 percent of U.S. Catholic children under age 18 are Hispanic, we need to examine with new eyes how Catholic schools are serving this population. This workshop introduces the findings from the National Survey of Catholic Schools Serving Hispanic Families (2015), conducted under the leadership of Dr. Hosffman Ospino. Come and learn from fresh data and analysis on a very important topic for the future of the Catholic community in the United States.
