Advancing the Practice of Culturally Responsive Ministry in Higher Education

The PASOS Network is a national community of praxis that transforms higher education institutions to cultivate un protagonismo for the Church and society through culturally sustaining practices rooted in the faith traditions of Latine students and the communities from which they come. It fosters collegiality and creativity amongst Catholic institutions, especially those who are concerned with doing culturally responsive work through every practice that touches faith, justice and Catholic identity.

The five key elements of this model are:

  • Pastoral. Enhancing culturally responsive ministry practices 
  • Acompañamiento. Rooting our ministries in theology of accompaniment  
  • Study. Fostering connections between study and prayer through scholarship
  • Organizing. Strengthening collective power to create change for our institutions and the Church
  • Synodality. Journeying together as one Church
