History & Purpose
Hispanics that identify as Catholics represent the largest, youngest, and fastest growing group in the U.S.
Understanding and appreciating the demographics, Archbishop Jose H. Gomez and Archbishop Charles Chaput recognized that Latino Catholics can make unique contributions to the Church and founded the Catholic Association of Latino Leaders (CALL) in 2007.
CALL is a national non-profit organization dedicated to the growth and spiritual formation of Latino leaders of this country in their knowledge and understanding of the Catholic faith.
CALL seeks to build a lay membership core of Catholic business, professional and community leaders who advocate for education, social and faith issues important to both the Catholic Church and the Latino Community.
Our Values & Priorities
Governed by a board of directors comprised of Bishops and faithful lay leaders, we are resolute in our commitment to the Church and its teachings.
CALL also cultivates a deep spiritual life through:
Faith Formation - enriching the lives of our members by providing concise, applicable, and tangible tools and resources to be utilized in our daily lives.
Service - be of service to our Bishops through proects that will positively impact our Church and communities at large.
Public Square - be a national voice on social justice issues and to impact the national dialogue and its outcomes affecting Latinos in areas of life, family, marriage, and Catholic doctrine.
