The Conversation with Deacon Joe Herrera (Hosted by Brian Cannon)
Deacon Joe Herrera was raised on the Cochiti Pueblo Tribe Reservation in New Mexico with English as a second language. His grandfather took him to his first Catholic Mass in Latin on the reservation. He was ordained a deacon in the Archdiocese of Santa Fe in 2003 and appointed by the Archbishop as Director of Native American Ministry. Deacon Joe now serves in Scottsdale at St. Patrick Catholic Community. He and Brian Cannon chat about the intersection of Pueblo and Catholic rituals and beliefs, the richness of diversity, and whether or not Disneyland is really the happiest place on earth.
