Growing Latino Catholic Clout: Latino Catholic Association’s new Washington, DC chapter

Washington D.C., Mar 24, 2011 / 02:49 am (CNA).- The Catholic Association of Latino Leaders opened its newest chapter in Washington, D.C. on March 23, with a ceremony at the Vatican’s embassy to the United States.

Washington, D.C.’s Cardinal Donald W. Wuerl presided at the commissioning ceremony, which also featured remarks from Archbishop Jose H. Gomez of Los Angeles and U.S. papal nuncio Archbishop Pietro Sambi. Archbishop Gomez was among the association’s founding members at its beginning in 2007.

As an organization of the lay faithful, the Catholic Association of Latino Leaders has a twofold focus on strengthening Latino Catholics’ faith lives, and influencing the direction of American society in keeping with Catholic social and moral teachings.
