Latino Leader Gatherings

The Initiative regularly brings together young Latino Catholics and others 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.
