The Office of Latino/Hispanic Ministries guides The Episcopal Church in forming hospitable communities of faith that nourish, strengthen, and develop disciples of Christ in the Anglican tradition within Spanish-speaking communities.
Latino/Hispanic Ministries yearns for a church that embodies the multiethnic, multilingual, and multicultural context we live in today. Our vision is to make The Episcopal Church known to Latino/Hispanic communities so that they may experience our church and embrace it as their spiritual home.
Latino/Hispanic Ministries of The Episcopal Church actively participates in the Jesus Movement. We support dioceses and congregations by producing resources, developing networks, and providing opportunities for formation of lay and ordained leaders.
