Hispanic Ministry

Affirming the gifts and contributions of Hispanic Catholics, the Archdiocese of Baltimore’s Hispanic Ministry seeks to help pastors and parishes provide more opportunities for their parishioners to engage in the life of the Church and to help shape its evangelization mission. Unfortunately, Hispanic communities in our state have been disproportionately affected by COVID-19. Working in conjunction with other local organizations, the Archdiocese and the Office of Hispanic Ministries have developed a multi-tiered approach to help arrest this trend, including a mobile information unit and a Spanish-language informational hotline. Spanish-speaking operators schedule testing and assist those impacted with referrals for follow-up care, food and cash assistance, eviction-prevention support, and access to isolation housing.
