“Hispanic ministry is the Church’s response to the Hispanic presence. This ministry must be seen as an integral part of the life and mission of the Church in this country…It entails a collaborative effort with the entire community and honors their history, their faith traditions, and the contributions Hispanic Catholics have made in service to the Church and society.”

 – USCCB. Encuentro and Mission, n.60.

The purpose of the Hispanic Ministry at St. Mary’s is to welcome, serve and provide the sacraments and spiritual support to the Spanish speaking community.
