Friar Cristofer M. Fernández, OFM Conv., a brother candidate of our province in studies at The Catholic University of America (Washington, DC), gave a virtual talk for the CSUSB PDC Catholic Newman Club’s Hispanic Heritage Month event. In his talk titled “Emerging Care for our Common Home: Migration, Creation Care, and Latino Catholics,” friar Cristofer discussed the relationship between human movement under the stresses of environmental disequilibrium and shared what Catholic social doctrine had to say regarding migration and creation care. Toward the end of the talk he explained what the hispanicization of the U.S. Church looked like and encouraged the college students to share their gifts with the Church and people in need. The students responded well to his talk and appeared to have fruitful dialogue in the breakout session.
