Hispanic Ministry

Misa

Todos los Sabados a las 7:00 de la noche la comunidad Hispana se reúne para la celebración de la Santa Misa. Da gusto ver que cada día en nuestra parroquia aumenta la asistencia de los fieles hispanos a celebrar juntamente con Jesús su Muerte y su Resurrección!

Los Hispanos celebramos durante el ano de tres a cuatro Misas Bilingües – según lo permita el calendario.

Grupo de Oración

Con mucho entusiasmo este grupo de oración atiende a las necesidades y peticiones de la comunidad; la mayoría de sus miembros también pertenecen al grupo de Biblia.

Nuestra parroquia de Santa Ana ofrece los servicios de preparación para recibir los sacramentos, tanto en Ingles como en Español, ya sea para bautismo, reconciliación, primera comunión, confirmación y matrimonio.

La parroquia se preocupa por que la Comunidad Hispana siempre tenga misiones, ya sea que vengan hermanas religiosas de México o locales, ye también personas laicas capacitadas en esté ministerio son bienvenidas a darle misiones a nuestra comunidad.

Gracias a la cooperación y buena voluntad de adultos jóvenes y niños tenemos los ministerios de Sagrada Comunión, Lectores, Ujieres, Monaguillos y Coro.

En nuestra comunidad de fe hay diversidad de culturas, por lo que durante el año hacemos diferentes clases de celebraciones ya sean religiosas o no-religiosas en esta forma todos aportamos algo de nuestras culturas y tradiciones; creemos que estos acercamientos nos ayudarán tarde que temprano (esperamos que se temprano) a estar unidos y en comunión y con Cristo.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
 

I write to you in a spirit of deep gratitude and hope.

We rejoice in knowing that the Hispanic/Latino people are a gift and a blessing to the Church and to the society in the United States. We know that millions of Hispanics/Latinos contribute to the life and the mission of the church in thousands of parishes and small ecclesial communities throughout the nation. Today we have an increasing number of priests, deacons, religious men and women and lay ecclesial ministers who provide leadership and service not only to the Hispanic/Latino but to the entire church. Furthermore, the proliferation of ecclesial

movements such as Charismatic Renewal, Cursillo, Marriage Encounter and many other movements provide the church with great vitality and with renewed hope and joy. This rich harvest of ministers and ministries has allowed the formation of national and regional Catholic Hispanic organizations which significantly contribute to the development, formation and accompaniment and support of the increasing network of Catholic leaders of Hispanic/Latino heritage.
 

We are deeply grateful to God and to you for all that have been accomplished. But we know that there is still much to be done and, for that reason, we ask ourselves: What can we do today to continue strengthening the Hispanic/Latino leadership and its important mission in the Church and society in the United States? To respond to this question, the Bishops’ Subcommittee on Hispanic Affairs has established the following among its priorities for 2010-2012:
 

  • To continue its New Evangelization efforts among the Hispanic/Latino faithful with an emphasis in ecclesial movements and their relationship to dioceses and parishes.

  • To strengthen the structure and ministerial competence of national and regional organizations which are part of the Hispanic/Latino ministry network as well as their collaborative ministry (pastoral de conjunto).

  • To promote higher education and faith formation among Hispanic/Latinos, especially, among young people.

  • To foster vocations to the priesthood and religious life among Hispanic/Latinos.


These priorities are part of the advancement and continuing education of the leadership of Hispanic/Latino ordained, religious men and women and laity and their service to the church. Included within each priority are finding creative responses to support and accompany those Hispanics/Latinos who face economic and spiritual difficulties as well various safety issues, such as those Mexican families on the border who are being stricken by displacement and deportation and by violence related to drug trafficking.
 

Once again, let us offer our efforts to the God of Life by working in His Vineyard and ask Him to bless us with enough love, hope and faith to yield abundant fruits just as Mary, our Mother and first disciple did.

 

Your brother in Christ,

 

Bishop Gerald Barnes

FROM THE ASSISTANT DIRECTOR SECRETARIAT FOR HISPANIC AFFAIRS

With more than 30 million Hispanic/Latino Catholics living in the United States, the future of the Church depends in great measure on the leadership that we offer and much in the same manner as the bishops describe it in Encuentro & Mission: A Renewed Pastoral Framework for Hispanic Ministry. The wealth of our historical memory, the ecclesial clarity of the Bishops documents on Hispanic ministry, and the vitality of our communities are some of the ingredients that generate the most promise in the Church today. I invite you to share, with even more generosity, your vision, perspectives, gifts and values in building the reign of God in your diocese and in the nation. In a special way, I invite you to seek creative ways to strengthen the Pastoral de Conjunto within your parishes and in your diocese. Let us continue being bridge- people as modeled in Encuentro & Mission. Let us live in joy today and tomorrow the call of Juan Paul II to "make the Church the home and the school of communion."
