Esperanza, a nonprofit organization serving the Latinx community of Philadelphia, has been running a project designed to help Latinx communities of faith embrace the truths of science and faith. The Ciencia, Fe y Esperanza (i.e., Science, Faith, and Hope) project addresses the disconnection between faith and science in the Latinx community with the intent of creating a safe space for dialogue, providing education, and encouraging young people to see STEM careers as vocational callings.
The project has created a tool kit of resources addressing the Latinx context, many of which are available in both English and Spanish. Among these resources, you will find:
- A recording of their first Science and Faith Summit
- A Science and Faith podcast
- Key survey findings about science and the Hispanic community of faith (en Español)
- Mental health resources (en Español)
- Resources addressing neurotheology
New resources continue to be added periodically. We encouraged you to go check out the resources available from Ciencia, Fe y Esperanza, and consider joining them for their second Science and Faith summit taking place in-person in Philadelphia on Thursday, September 23, 2021.
