Hispanic Ministry

Hispanic Ministry

Hispanic Masses have been established in several parishes in the Diocese of Alexandria. These Masses serve to develop and strengthen the spiritual and cultural values of the Hispanic Catholic community. The Hispanic Masses continue to widen the ethnic diversity of the Catholic Church and American society as a whole.

If you are interested in serving Christ through the Hispanic Ministry, there is always a need for bilingual volunteers to help Hispanic immigrants in the process of gaining citizenship. Volunteers could assist individuals by helping them fill out INS forms, by explaining terms and by helping them prepare for exams. Professionals in the legal, medical, counseling, sports and arts fields could also be of tremendous assistance to the Hispanic Ministry. The need also arises periodically for volunteers to assist with community services during times of crisis. Please contact one of the churches listed below.
