(p.67) Chapter 3 Hispanic Ministry
Latino Catholicism

Timothy Matovina

Princeton University Press

This chapter discusses how the pastoral outreach among Latinos today in dioceses, parishes, and apostolic movements extends the efforts of those who promoted Hispanic ministry during the Encuentro era. According to current statistics, more than 80 percent of the 195 dioceses in the United States have diocesan staff assigned to coordinate Hispanic ministry, though with varying degrees of time commitment ranging from part-time coordinators to full-time directors. However, several diocesan directors have articulated to U.S. bishops their growing concerns related to the closing of diocesan offices for Hispanic ministry or their placement under multicultural ministry offices and their alarm that while the Hispanic presence continues to grow and demand a more robust ministerial response, diocesan personnel and/or resources for Hispanic ministry are diminishing in a number of archdioceses.
