The Hispanic presence in the Church in the US is growing tremendously. In our country, 38% of all Catholics and 54% of all Catholics under the age of 25 are Hispanic. This is a great blessing and presents a number of challenges. Currently, Hispanics make up only 6% of our priests. There is a real need to promote Hispanic religious vocations for both Spanish and English-speaking Hispanic communities (70% of all US Hispanics are not immigrants). How is the Church in your community reaching out to young Hispanics and helping to create a culture of vocations in the family and the parish?

For resources to help your parish promote, Hispanic vocations please visit the USCCB vocations website.
