Hispanic Theology and Ministry Program

Since 1982, CTU has been serving the Hispanic Church of the United States by offering courses, programs and events that prepare lay and ordained ministers to work with the Latino/a Catholic community in the USA and around the world. 

Hispanic Theology and Ministry Program (HTMP)

Catholic Theological Union offers courses in Hispanic Ministry to provide theological education that is historically, culturally, and religiously grounded in the U.S. Hispanic/Latino context and experience.  These courses are directed toward both Hispanic and non-Hispanic persons who are interested in ministry with the rapidly growing U.S. Latino/Hispanic communities.  These courses are useful in any of CTU’s degree programs and can be used for the Hispanic Studies Concentration in the MAPS program.

CTU also offers other educational opportunities such as seminars, workshops, community dialogue, and special events. Catholic Theological Union cooperates with the Ecumenical Hispanic Resources Committee on Academic Cooperation in Hyde Park and with other centers in the Chicago area to ensure effective pastoral training that is responsive to the needs of local Hispanic communities.
