Annual Lecture in Christian Ethics

Hosffman Ospino, PhD presented What Does It Mean to Be a Catholic Neighbor in a Polarized America? on April 11.

Hosffman OspinoCatholics in the United States of America welcomed the twenty-first century in the midst of major social, demographic, and cultural changes. Those changes demand a close analysis of how we live the Gospel within our own faith communities and in the larger society. The lecture explored key Catholic ethical and pastoral commitments to respond in particular to the culturally diverse nature of Catholicism in our day and to the presence of immigrant Catholic sisters and brothers in our own faith communities -- or fail to do so.

He has been the principal investigator for several national studies measuring the impact of the Hispanic presence in Catholic structures throughout the United States. He has written and edited 13 books and more than 150 essays, academic and general. He serves on the boards of several national Catholic organizations.
