The Miguel Arias Scholarship will offer opportunities for Spanish speakers to study the liturgy. The scholarship is named for Miguel Arias, a pioneer in the liturgical literacy of Spanish-speaking immigrants in the Catholic Church in the United States. Miguel’s love for the liturgy was reflected in his dedication to studying it, his passion in teaching it, and in his joyous way of relating to everyone around him. The Miguel Arias Scholarship will provide annual grants to Spanish-speaking individuals with the hope that they will minister to the faithful in Spanish-speaking communities in the United States.
Applications are accepted from February 1 to March 31 each year. The Miguel Arias Scholarship is administered by the Federation of Diocesan Liturgical Commissions with funds provided by Liturgy Training Publications.
