Latino Leader Gatherings

The Initiative regularly brings together young Latino Catholics to explore key issues and personal stories involving faith and public life with distinguished Latinos and other leaders. These events also offer valuable opportunities for discussion, reflection, networking at happy hours and receptions, and community-building. These gatherings are supported by the Initiative's Latino Leadership Group which is made up of national leaders in the Latino community.  Past topics include the impact of a pope from Latin America, immigration issues, and lay leadership in the Latino community.
