The Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe, in conjunction with the University of St. Mary of the Lake/Mundelein Seminary, would like to invite interested members of the community to a special presentation of a new book chronicling the history and contributions of the Catholic Mexican immigrant community in Chicago.
Dr. Kanter served as the John S. Ludington endowed professor of history and department chair at Albion College and is the author of Chicago Católico, a book filled with stories about the unique evolution and relationship between Chicago and the Mexican Catholic community. The book completes her 20-year project to chronicle Mexican Catholic parishes in Chicago. She said, “I wanted to write a book that friends could give their moms for Christmas. I wanted to write a book for the general public.”
