Archdiocesan Pastoral Plan for
Hispanic Ministry
Let us pray…
Together we pray the
Prayer for the Americas by
John Paul II. It is on page 6
of the Plan.
The multi-cultural reality of American society is a source of
enrichment for the Church, but it also presents challenges to
pastoral action. Many Dioceses, because of past and continuing
immigration, have a strong Hispanic presence. The Hispanic
faithful bring their own particular gifts to the local Church, not
least the vitality of their faith and their deep sense of family
values. They also face enormous difficulties, and you are making
great efforts to have priests and others appropriately trained to
provide good pastoral care and needed services to minority
families and communities. In the face of extremely active
proselytism by other religious groups, instruction in the faith, the
building up of living communities, attention to the needs of
families and young people, the fostering of personal and family
prayer, a spiritual and liturgical life centered on the Eucharist and
genuine Marian devotion are all essential. The Hispanic faithful
should be able to feel that their natural place, their spiritual
home, is in the heart of the Catholic community.
