Mission Statement

The Office of Hispanic Ministry of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston has as its end the glory of God through the sanctification of all its collaborators and participants. It works in Communion in Mission (Pastoral de Conjunto) as an interactive communications center for the Hispanic community. 

Faithful to the principles, values and teachings of the Catholic Church, our office observes, listens, and discerns the needs of the Hispanic community, and responds in collaboration with the various Archdiocesan offices, parishes, as well as with other secular organizations. 

It promotes inclusion among the different cultures in light of the encounter with Christ, appealing to "the spiritual and moral capacities of the human person and to the permanent need for inner conversion"*, so as to achieve true reconciliation, solidarity and unity among all.

It seeks to integrate and empower Hispanics into leadership positions, fostering in them the vocation to the priesthood and/or religious life, as well as the call to permanent diaconate, ecclesial lay ministry, and responsible participation in society at large.
