  • A look through a Latinx lens at how the Episcopal/Anglican church can minister to and with the Latinx community

Unmasking Latinx Ministry is a unique look at the history of the Episcopal Church in the last fifty years, including a bold and insightful analysis of the institutionalization of Latinx ministries. This history is contextualized within the struggles of the Episcopal Church in terms of race, gender, and sexuality.

Through a Latinx lens, the author brings fresh eyes to the challenges faced by the Episcopal Church's ministry with and among Latinx persons and communities. Along with the historical analysis and insight, the author brings a background and formation in Episcopal churches in Puerto Rico, Texas, California, and Central New York, as well as more than fifteen years of experience in a multicultural and multiracial, monolingual, and bilingual congregations in New York City. Combining this history and ministry experience, the author explores specific areas where Episcopal/Anglican traditions speak to Latinx ministries and what Latinx persons and communities offer the Episcopal Church today.

Audience: Church leadership, clergy, seminarians
