The past forty years has been a time of great change in the history of the Catholic Church, including the educational role of the family. In the Vatican II document Lumen Gentium, the family is described as a "domestic church" where all are called upon to actively and responsibly work for the common good, to return to religious traditions in the home, and to care for the marginalized in one's family and community. FAMILIAS EN LA LUCHA examines what it can mean to journey with Roman Catholic Hispanic families living in New York City from the perspective of a parish religious educator. The case study method is used to probe the lived experience of Hispanic families as religious educators, and the role of the parish religious educator seeking to journey with families. This book provides thick descriptions and portraits of the families, parish religious educators and faith communities to highlight myths, contemporary challenges and emerging opportunities. FAMILIAS EN LA LUCHA is a valuable resource for religious educators engaged in family ministry and catechesis in homes and parishes as well as those in colleges, dioceses and parishes who are preparing leaders to work with families.
