Annual Hispanic Ministry and Theology Lecture with Dr. Maria Clara Bingemer

You are invited to the 7th Annual Hispanic Ministry and Theology Lecture, hosted this year with the Center for Migration Studies of New York (CMS) Tomasi Lecture as part of the 2017 Catholic Immigrant Integration Initiative Conference, which will be held at LMU October 11-13.

The CMS Fr. Lydio F. Tomasi, C.S. Annual Lecture on International Migration was established in 2014 by the board of trustees of the Center for Migration Studies of New York (CMS) through a generous contribution from The Rotondaro Family Fund. CMS’s Catholic Immigrant Integration Initiative seeks to study, document and support a growing network of diverse Catholic institutions that are working successfully to advance immigrant integration, empowerment and well-being.

About the Lecturer
Maria Clara Bingemer, Ph.D. is a noted Brazilian theologian. A full professor at Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio de Janeiro (PUC), she focuses her research on systematic theology and in particular on Latin American and liberation theology.

About the LMU Latino/a Theology and Ministry Initiative
The Initiative emerged from a need to assess and then respond to the large population of Hispanic Catholics in the United States and is a joint project of the Department of Theological Studies and the Center for Religion and Spirituality. As a Catholic university in the largest Catholic archdiocese in the country, LMU is uniquely situated to gather data and marshal resources that will aid in preparing Latino/a Catholics for leadership and service in the Church. As the Hispanic Catholic population continues to grow, LMU seeks to grow in the capacity to truly serve this important community in the Body of Christ. Learn more at
