Ministry to the Latinos

There has been a sharp demographic shift in population in Northeast Nebraska. Corporations have hired large numbers of Hispanic men and women to do labor-intensive work. These Hispanic immigrants need spiritual and financial support, understanding and compassion. It is through the love of Christ that we are called to solidarity with the poor and that we have an open heart for their needs including:

  • Religious formation of children and adults
  • Personal affirmation, assertiveness training and counseling to Hispanic women
  • Language interpretation in health care, legal and social service areas
  • Assistance in finding affordable housing and social service programs to meet their needs
  • Immigration counseling and advocacy
