Mexican Americans in the Catholic Church, 1900–1965

Mexican Americans in the Catholic Church, 1900–1965

Edited by Jay P. Dolan and Gilberto Hinojosa

In this landmark volume, three well-known historians examine the Mexican American legacy within the Catholic Church, focusing on Mexican-American faith communities in the Southwest, California and the Midwest.

“Few historians have studied Mexican-American Catholicism, though many have suggested its importance in Chicano history. Mexian Americans and the Catholic Church is a pioneering effort that begins to redress this long-standing neglect through three essays focused on Texas and the Southwest, California, and the Midwest. . . . In beginning to identify the contours of Mexican-American Catholic history, these essays provide much to contemplate and pursue for those seeking a fuller understanding of Chicano history and the importance of religion in the American experience. . . . An invaluable and long overdue book.” —Western Historical Quarterly

“[This] is an excellent book for anyone who desires to understand the struggles of the Catholic Church in building bridges from a Euro-American culture to a Hispanic culture. . . . a major resource for anyone who desires to know more about how to appreciate another culture and how to build bridges to that culture.” —Missiology
