The John Paul II Lecture Series is a quarterly event which features intellectually stimulating talks and time for socializing with wine and appetizers provided free of charge. Each event is held in the refectory of St. John Vianney Seminary at 1300 S. Steele St., Denver. Wine and hors d’oeuvres are available at 7 pm. The lecture begins at 7:30 pm.
The talk will address the significance of Hispanic Catholics in the present and future of the Catholic Church in the US and how demographics are challenging our current paradigms regarding how we consider the presence of Latinos in the US. It will also challenge to consider the growing Hispanic population in the US as an issue that needs to be seen beyond the debate around immigration.
