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. Also, TC seminarians and faculty participate in weekly Evening Prayer in Spanish and twice-monthly Spanish Mass. TC offers pastoral ministry and outreach opportunities at Hispanic parishes and charities in the D.C. metro area.

For many consecutive years, TC seminarians have organized spring break mission trips to Honduras, which will undoubtedly continue in future years.
