La Misa Campesina Nicaragüense

April 12, 2018
7:00 pm
Rosary Chapel

La Misa Campesina Nicaragüense is a popular and regional liturgical music, written and sung in Spanish. Composed by Carlos Mejía Godoy, it incorporates liberation theology and Nicaraguan folk music. Through music, this work helped to solidify a theological and revolutionary vision of God’s reign that was alive in other Latin American countries, which like Nicaragua, were fighting to end prevailing political dictatorships. Godoy sought to unite Nicaraguan rhythms in a great masterpiece and, at the same time, to speak to the people about a living God who accompanied them in daily life: a carpenter, a gas station attendant, a farmer and an employee. 

Co-sponsored by: Spanish and Modern Foreign Language, University Ministry, the Office of Student Involvement, the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, Latino/Latin American Studies, History, and the Saint Catherine of Siena Center.

Celebration of Service and Ministry

April 15, 2015
Parmer Atrium
1:00 p.m.

Borderlands: Tijuana

May 14-20
San Diego, CA and Tijuana, MX

Borderlands is a unique opportunity to serve and to learn in the space in between two nations, two cultures, two ways of life. It is a seven-day, six night service immersion to the U.S./México border communities of San Diego, CA and Tijuana, MX. During the journey, students, faculty, and staff experience and unpack the socio-political  herida abierta, (open wound) that is the border between two peoples. We will explore the ways that the U.S./México border is more than a place. It is a metaphor for the way that our lives are the complex integration of many things: faith, culture, society, desires, fears, hopes, and dreams. The borderlands are a place within us and a place that exists in the world.

Dominican University is proud to convene colleagues from around the nation for an innovative, three-day conference offering the opportunity for rich theological reflection by pastoral ministers, student leaders and theological educators en conjunto (together).  ¡El Futuro Is Here! seeks develop a means for our institutions to celebrate the cultural practices of our Latinx students and see them as constitutive of a vibrant faith life en lo cotidiano. We will pursue more generous and culturally grounded strategies for theological education and pastoral praxis that can be implemented on our home campuses.
