Entre Amigos -Latino Blog


“Entre Amigos” is a monthly column with a Latino flavor available in English and Spanish and reflecting the communications style that is typical of Latinos when they are speaking

The USCCB Office of Public Affairs offers "Entre Amigos," a blog with a Latino perspective and flavor to run in English and Spanish. Latinos are often gregarious. We like to sit down and discuss the happenings of the day, often around a table, with relatives and friends. Among friends we dare to expose our inner selves, and our moral and religious beliefs, one way or another, always surface or give shape to the conversation. In this blog, we offer comments from guest writers or the editors on current issues related to our Latino culture and Catholic faith –such as immigration, Catholic ministry, marriage and family – that can serve as conversation starters among family and "Entre Amigos."
