The University of Notre Dame’s Institute for Latino Studies will convene a gathering of theologians and other scholars in Havana Sunday-Tuesday (Oct. 16-18) to discuss the impact of Pope Francis’ visits to Latin America and the United States.
The colloquium, to be held in the Casa Sacerdotal (Priests’ House) of the Archdiocese of Havana, will include participants from throughout Latin America and the United States — among them, a group of Notre Dame undergraduate students enrolled in one of the institute’s theology courses.
Among those invited to the meeting are Cardinal Jaime Ortega, who presided over three papal visits to Cuba; Catholic journalist and papal biographer Austin Ivereigh; Bishop Felipe Estevez of St. Augustine, Florida; and Jesuit theologian Rev. Allan Figueroa Deck of Marymount University.
