Remembering the Medellin Conference

, , | | September 4, 2012

This two-page resource provides background on the Latin American Bishops’ conference held in Medellin, Colombia in 1968. The conference marked a sea-change in the Latin American church, denouncing unjust social structures and embracing the concept of the ‘preferential option for the poor.’ The resource also includes a personal reflection from Father Joseph Nangle, OFM, who served as a pastor in Lima, Peru at the time of the conference.
