Abstract (Summary)

This qualitative phenomenological study explored the perceptions and experiences of 17 Hispanic young adults in the Albuquerque area of the Archdiocese of Santa Fe. Some of the themes that emerged from the study were that all of the study participants indicated that they felt engaged and part of their parish communities and that many felt that they were responding to God’s call to be faithful to Christ and His Church. This engagement helped 82% of the study coresearchers to go out in the greater Albuquerque area and be active in different community groups and activities. Another one of the themes that emerged was that all of the study coresearchers also indicated that there was a significant person who has been present to them along their journey of faith. Technology is important to the young adults who participated in this study as 88% of the young adults indicated that they used technology as a means of interacting religiously.
