Quincy University’s Equity + Diversity and Campus Ministry will co-host a Catholic Spanish Mass in the QU Chapel on Saturday, September 25 at 6 p.m. (1800 College) in celebration of Latin American Heritage Month.

“The presence and contributions of Latin American culture in the United States are invaluable,” said Measha Ferguson Smith, graduate coordinator for the office of equity and diversity. “As our communities change, we want to be responsive and intentional by inviting everyone to share in rich cultural traditions.”

The special Catholic Mass will be conducted in Spanish to unite diverse people of common faith. All members of the public are encouraged to attend – whether you speak Spanish or not. A small reception will follow the service featuring Mexican-themed music, games and desserts. Masks are required.
