May they all be one...

With me in them and you in me may they be so perfected in unity that the world will recognize that it was you who sent me and that you have loved them as you have loved me.

~ John 17:21,22-23

BIENVENIDOS  La Oficina de Ministerio Hispano es un lugar donde nuestra misma Fe, nuestro mismo Bautismo y nuestra misma mesa Eucarística en el Señor se hacen visibles.  Junto con el grupo de líderes de la pastoral Hispana, la oficina provee un ministerio directo a los Católicos Hispanos de la arquidiócesis y ejerce su compromiso  a  una auténtica Pastoral de Conjunto . Esto significa estar en contacto con los Católicos de la arquidiócesis y con otras oficinas arquidiocesanas con el fin de cooperar juntos en la oración, servicio y colaboración. Confío en nuestra pastoral. 

WELCOME The Office of Hispanic Ministry is a place where our one Faith, our one Baptism, and our one Eucharistic Table in the Lord are made visible. Together with the Hispanic Pastoral Leaders Group, the office provides direct ministry to Hispanic Catholics across the archdiocese, and exercises its commitment to a genuine Pastoral de Conjunto (Communion in Mission). This means being in contact with Catholics of the archdiocese, and with other archdiocesan offices in order to engage in mutual prayer, service and collaboration.  I look forward to our ministry together.

Pastoral Message on Immigration & Reconciliation / Mensaje Pastoral sobre Inmigración y Reconciliación

Most Reverend Robert J. Carlson, Archbishop of St. Louis, has issued a pastoral statement on immigration and reconciliation during National Migration Week 2017 to “reaffirm” his “pastoral commitment to accompany our immigrant and refugee families.”

 “As I have done on previous occasions, I call upon the faithful of the Archdiocese of St. Louis and the people of good will to join me in solidarity with our immigrant and refugee communities… May our commitment to walk with the immigrant and refugee be a light in the darkness for others to see and follow,” the statement reads.

The Office of Hispanic Ministry of the Archdiocese of St. Louis invites people of all faiths to attend one of several prayer services on Friday, January 13, to join in solidarity with immigrants and refugees around the world.

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) website says that “for nearly a half century, the Catholic Church in the United States has celebrated National Migration Week, which is an opportunity for the Church to reflect on the circumstances confronting migrants, including immigrants, refugees, children, and victims and survivors of human trafficking.”

Day of prayer.
