    Latino Culture in the U.S.

    In this special episode of Talking Catholic, guests Andrés Arango, Director of Hispanic Ministry and Evangelization for the Diocese of Camden and Marianne Zayas, Director of Parish Services for the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception chat with hosts Michael Walsh and Marianela Nuñez about the Hispanic Heritage Month celebration in the U.S. and how Latino Catholics are bringing their gifts to both our faith as well as the American experience. (Of course, Mike is mostly focused on the food, but in all seriousness, there are many nuances of Latino culture that are often misunderstood - starting with, is referring to all hispanics and South American’s as Latino actually accurate. Answer: nope, but you have to listen to find out why!)

    Additionally, our listeners are invited to attend the virtual Hispanic Diocesan Mass on October 25th at 3pm - available on Camden Diocese’s YouTube, Facebook and Twitter channels. This Mass is always a great event!

    Dr. Hosffman Ospino

    Dr. Hosffman Ospino

    Joining us this week is acclaimed Catholic speaker, author and academic Dr. Hosffman Ospino, Associate Professor of Hispanic Ministry and Religious Education, as well as chair of the Department of Religious Education and Pastoral Ministry at Boston College. Dr. Ospino’s research explores the dialogue between faith and culture and the impact of this interchange upon Catholic theological education, catechesis, and ministry. He has served as the principal investigator for several nationally recognized studies on how the Hispanic Catholic presence is transforming parishes, schools and organizations.

    Dr. Ospino was also a keynote speaker at the Diocese of Camden’s Convocation of Catholic Leaders in 2018, which is why we asked that event’s executive director, Donna Ottaviano-Britt, on to the show to talk about some of the ways the Convocation has led to the percolating of new ideas in our parishes. The duo give our hosts, Marianela Nunez and Mike Walsh, and our listeners a lot of great information that should provide a roadmap into the future for our parishes.

    Kevin Hickey, Catholic Charities and Justice for All

    Kevin Hickey, Catholic Charities and Justice for All

    Making his triumphant return to the Talking Catholic podcast is Kevin Hickey, executive director of Catholic Charities in the Diocese of Camden. One of our favorite recurring guests, Kevin chats with us this week about the organization’s Justice for All ceremony, this year being held virtually on October 8, 2020.

    For 17 years, the South Jersey Catholic Charities agency has held the Justice for All dinner to showcase the great work being done in the region and to raise much needed funds.

    The agency is able to serve approximately 24,000 individuals each year, in large part because of funds raised by the Justice for All ceremony.  It is the largest fundraiser held by the agency and all funds raised from the event are used for direct client services.  Since its inception in 2004, it has raised more than 1 million dollars, every penny of which is used to meet the needs of the poorest and the marginalized – families who are homeless or facing homelessness, those with mental health or substance abuse crises, individuals struggling with hardships such as losing their jobs or being forced to choose between paying for food or medications.

    The Justice for All event also honors those who have proven a life-long commitment to serving the poor and the vulnerable, highlighting their work and their commitment to charity and social justice. This year, Catholic Charities will bestow five Disciples of Mercy awards on individuals and groups, as well as the Saint John Neumann award to Bishop Dennis Sullivan of the Diocese of Camden for his long-time support of Catholic Charities.

    If you would like to watch the event or support the event through sponsorships or by partaking in their on-line auction, go to https://catholiccharitiescamden.org/jfa2020/.
