What is Hispanic Ministry?

Sacred Heart Church has a tradition of a very active Hispanic community.  Our Hispanic Ministries program is designed to serve our Latino community, and to celebrate and share the rich cultural Sacred Heart Church | Hispanic Ministriestraditions.  Programs include: our English/Spanish Mass each week, various outreach and service ministries, special Masses, festivities and novenas throughout the year, and a sacramental preparation program that guides our young Hispanic children as they enter into full communion with our entire parish community.

The mission of the Hispanic Ministry at Sacred Heart Church is to proclaim the Gospel in the Hispanic/Latino community and to bring all Hispanic Catholics into full, enthusiastic participation in the life and mission of our Church, while strengthening the unity of the One Body of Christ. This mission is accomplished by:

** Welcoming the presence of Hispanic Catholics and building community among them and among our entire parish;
** Reaching out to Hispanic Catholics inactive in their faith and to Hispanics with no church affiliation;
** Affirming and promoting the cultural identity of Hispanic/Latino Catholics while at the same time respecting the cultural identity of the faithful who are not Hispanic;
** Expressing and celebrating the faith in a spirit of communion and participation;
Promoting social justice in a spirit of solidarity and responding to the needs and aspirations of the poor and vulnerable;
** Inviting and training Hispanics to be ministers in the Church;
** Providing Catechesis and faith formation for Hispanic Catholics of all ages.
