Hispanic Ministry

Hispanic MinistryThe Missionary Oblates have more than 20 Spanish-speaking parishes in the United States.  In addition to providing for the spiritual needs of their parishioners, the Oblates are also active in a variety of social outreach programs that help immigrants adjust to life in the United States.

In Houston, Texas the Oblates are responsible for Immaculate Conception Parish and Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish.  These parishes have active Cursillo ministries; a spiritual-renewal movement intended to develop Christian disciples and leaders.

In San Antonio, Texas San Juan de Los Lagos Parish has been in the care of the Oblates since 1952.  The parish has an active Guadalupanas ministry comprised of men and women who are bound together under the spiritual guidance of Our Lady of Guadalupe and are open to God’s call to serve the parish both in its spiritual and physical needs.

Some of the largest Oblate parishes in the United States serve Hispanic populations in the San Fernando area of southern California.  The Oblates’ St. Ferdinand Parish has six Sunday Masses and at Santa Rosa Parish there are nine Masses on Sunday.
