Encountering Our History, Shaping Our Future: Latinas and the Church in the United States
March 15 • Spring 2021 Lecture Series: The Demands of Encounter
Join us online for this virtual event.
Join the Loyola Institute for Ministry as it hosts the second presentation in its virtual lecture series entitled The Demands of Encounter Today. Natalia Imperatori-Lee, Ph.D., will present this second lecture in the series exploring the demands on us of Pope Francis’ call to create a culture of encounter. Dr. Imperatori-Lee is Professor of Religious Studies at Manhattan College. Her research interests include Catholic ecclesiology, particularly the intersection of ecclesial identity with feminist and Latino/a Catholic thought. She is the author of Cuéntame: Narrative in the Ecclesial Present (Orbis Books, 2018), which elaborates a Catholic ecclesiology from a Latino/a perspective by exploring how narratives shape ecclesiology.
The three lectures in the series explore the demands on us of Pope Francis’ call to create a culture of encounter. This series is intended to draw out theology’s public implications and so inspire people to work for the transformation of our Church and world with special attention to racial injustice. The final lecture will take place on April 12.
