My Ministry at La Comunidad Hispana/Latina

By:  Sr. Gladys Echenique

During these past two years, I have struggled to discern the Lord’s vision for a church like La Comunidad Hispana/Latina en Santa Elizabeth Ann Seton. The church is the largest of the 76 parishes in the Diocese of Tucson.  It is a beautiful church, and its parishioners have diverse racial and financial backgrounds. What they share in common is their generosity. They are always ready to reach out to the needy. 

The mission of La Comunidad Hispana/Latina en Santa Elizabeth Ann Seton is to proclaim the gospel in the Hispanic/Latino community and to bring Hispanic Catholics into enthusiastic participation in the life and mission of our church while strengthening the unity of the One Body of Christ.  At this point, the ministry of La Comunidad Hispana/Latina en Santa Elizabeth Ann Seton Church serves mostly first generation Hispanic/Latino immigrants. La Comunidad also is blessed to serve the children and adults of this first generation in their own language.
