HSP 35th Anniversary Celebration Save The Date

For over 35 years, the Hispanic Summer Program has taught over 1,800 seminarians and graduate students of religion, provided training for over 200 non-Latinx faculty and administrators, and contributed to the development of countless Latinx clergy, community organizers, and faculty in our now year-round programming. We have partnered with and significantly expanded and enriched the theological education being offered at seminaries and universities across the country with academic courses and high-level programs that directly address Latinx history, ministry, and theology. In June of 2024, we will celebrate this legacy of Latinx theological leadership formation. Join us!
