¡NO HABLO ESPAÑOL! Noelle Garcia with David McHugh


Product Type: Mp3 Recording

While David’s mom is Puerto Rican and fluent in Spanish, and Noelle’s dad is Mexican and fluent in Spanish, neither one grew up with Spanish spoken in their home. For the past four years, however, Noelle and David have been ministering in a bilingual community at a bilingual parish. This workshop, based on personal experience, will give some practical advice for ministering in a community that embraces more than one culture. Discover ways to plan events and liturgies that bring diverse groups together and explore the realities experienced by different generations within the same family.


Noelle Garcia and David McHugh have been married for 9 years and are parents to five children. They travel around the country doing music and youth ministry but their home base is in Dodge City, Kansas! Noelle is finishing her Masters of Theological Studies at Newman University in Wichita, and David has a B.A. in Theology from Franciscan University. They minister together at the National Catholic Youth Conference, LA RECongress, and have also performed internationally at World Youth Day in Sydney, Australia. Noelle also appeared in the 2009 CNN documentary, “Latino in America” sharing her music and testimony. David has a unique style of playing guitar on his own invention – Percoustix (patented) – which allows him to play drums and guitar at the same time. When not chasing around and homeschooling their five kiddos, the husband and wife team enjoy sharing their faith with lots of laughs, prayer, and music!
