2009 Liturgical Calendar

Episcopal Church Ministry Office of Latino / Hispanic
Dear friends, In 1970, the Episcopal Church took steps to Reach out to the Growi
ng Latino / Hispanic Population by Creating a commission and Establishing an off
ice to help direct the ministry and Provide resources to Ensure future growth. I
n 1976 We Had 54 Congregations and today we Have over 300 Congregations in the U
.S. alone. In Addition, There Are More Than 375 Congregations in Province IX - n
ot to mention the number of schools, clinics, hospitals and theological centers.
As I Have Traveled about the church and met with many leaders, I Have Been Impr
essed with the vitality and Growth That I see everywhere. In Spite of the Ongoin
g persecution of Our undocumented brothers and sisters, and in Spite of Difficul
t Economic Times, I see evidence of hope and joy in Our Latino / Hispanic Congre
gations. WHO Latinos find the Episcopal Church encounter a welcoming community,
family Liturgical worship and That Is Ongoing Opportunities for Growth and a dee
per spiritual experience of God. This year we will be Presenting Our Strategic P
lan to the leadership of the Church. It is my dream That the Strategic Plan will
Provide all of us with a vision and steps to continue to expand Our ministry of
hospitality and spiritual nurture. I wish to thank all of you Who Have work to
make this ministry so Enriching. Continued Your generosity and support is vital.
Join me in prayer for new vocations and commit yourselves to share your resourc
es in Our common work. Dear friends, In 1970, with the purpose of serving the ra
pidly growing Latino / Hispanic, the Episcopal Church created a committee and es
tablished an office to provide resources and assist in the direction of the mini
stry. In 1976 we had 54 congregations and now we have over 300 congregations in
the United States. There are also more than 375 congregations in the Ninth Provi
nce - not to mention the number of schools, clinics, hospitals and theological e
ducation. When traveling from place to place and meet with leaders in our church
, I am impressed with the vitality and growth that I see everywhere. Despite con
stant persecution our brothers and sisters illegal, and despite the problems in
our economy, I see evidence of hope and joy in our congregations Latin / Hispani
c. Latinos who find the Episcopal Church are a community that welcomes, a cult t
hat is familiar and opportunities to grow spiritually and have deeper experience
s of God. This year, we will present our strategic plan to the leadership of the
Church. My dream is that the strategic plan will provide us all with a vision a
nd steps to continue to grow our ministry of hospitality and training opportunit
ies and spiritual growth. I thank all those who have made this ministry somethin
g so enriching. Your continued generosity and support is vital. Let us unite in

Church of All Saints, Pasadena, CA
In the Church of All Saints in Pasadena, California our call to be inclusive and
prophetic is proclaimed every Sunday when we say: "Whoever you are, wherever yo
u are on your path of faith, we have a place for you here." This proclamation ra
dical of God's unconditional love for every human being is the 'DNA' of our fait
h community. In 2005, we opened a bilingual Mass (English and Spanish) to serve

the rich and diverse Latino community but also reflects our values of radical in clusion and social justice. Our worship is a dream, but it will never be a dream come true, because our experience of the transforming spirit of God reminds us that our church, our church is always our starting point, rather than our point of arrival that our mission is out into the world to love and serve God and neig hbor. Many will be challenges but many more blessings. And that is precisely wha t our faces in these photographs remind want.

Church of All Saints, Las Vegas, NV

Children and youth tell the story of our first year of ministry with the Hispani c community in Las Vegas. The Church of All Saints began the first Spanish-langu age ministry in September 2007 when Bernardo Iniesta and his wife, Dolores, expr essed a call to start a ministry serving the Latino community. They began knocki ng on doors and handing out bulletins in the community. This ministry is alive a nd growing and the vitality and growth is in our children and youth. Since Novem ber 2007 we

celebrated 30 baptisms, 26 confirmations, four quinceañeras, a marriage and 36 f irst communions. Our average attendance each Sunday is 79, and the biggest celeb ration of 297 people. The typical congregation each Sunday is composed of ¼ - ½ of children and youth. December 7, 2008 was a historic day when Bernard was welc omed as Episcopal priest there as witnesses of his pastoral work, evangelism, an d leadership were more than 250 people in their mass reception. Father Bernardo is the first and so far the only pastoral leader of the first Hispanic ministry of the Diocese of Nevada.
