Spanish Culture and Studies

Theological College is committed to forming seminarians prepared to meet the needs of the increasingly diverse cultural environment of the USA, with particular attention given to ministering to the Hispanic population, which comprises more than 35 percent of the Catholic Church in America.

The Hispanic Affairs Committee, part of the Student Government Association, organizes Mass and evening prayer in Spanish, Spanish film nights, Hispanic food and fellowship gatherings, and tutoring for those who wish to improve their language skills.

In collaboration with CUAbroad, Theological College encourages enrollment in the Spanish Language and Ministry Institute for Seminarians and Priests. This summer program for Spanish immersion allows students to reside at the Seminary of Our Lady of Guadalupe, in Mexico City, and to receive a Certificate of Intensive Spanish Studies and Ministry after successful completion.
