Sr. Gladys Expands Hispanic Leadership Formation in Tucson

When the 80-member delegation heads to Phoenix Feb. 23-25 for the regional V Encuentro, they may be the least known trailblazers ever to emerge from the Diocese of Tucson. Dominican Sister Gladys Echenique said Jan. 9 that she sees the upcoming meeting as the fruit of many of the Diocese’s Hispanic Ministry efforts.

Hired in 2012, Sister Gladys proposed and wrote a pastoral plan for Hispanic Ministry, which led to an expansion of faith formation among Hispanic leaders. Prior to 2015, when the plan was implemented, there were 178 Hispanic leaders at Level I certification – a catechist level – and none at Level II. Since then, the number of ministers certified at Level I has swelled to nearly 400, with another 110 now at Level II.
