The following publishing companies and journals provide resources for Hispanic Ministry.
Founded in 1865 at Notre Dame, Indiana, Ave Maria Press, a ministry of the Congregation of Holy Cross, is a Catholic publishing company that serves the spiritual and formative needs of the Church and its schools, institutions, and ministers; Christian individuals and families; and others seeking spiritual nourishment.
In the tradition of Holy Cross, we are committed, as educators in the faith, to helping people know, love, and serve God and to spreading the gospel of Jesus through books and other resources.
Ave publishes the Recursos para el Ministerio Hispano series. It brings together several leading voices reflecting on the Hispanic Catholic experience in the United States to address key topics that are central to faith and leadership formation of Hispanics. The books in this series are insightful and accessible, challenging, and invitational. The series itself is an introduction to Catholicism through Hispanic spiritual, theological, and pastoral lenses. Each book in the series is written in Spanish to address the needs of millions of Hispanic Catholics in the United States.
The books in the series, approved by ecclesiastical authorities (i.e., nihil obstat), can be used as texts for foundational courses about Catholicism and ministry. These books are ideal for programs of catechetical formation and for training for Hispanic ministry.
The Hispanic Ministry Resource Center, created in 1990, grew out of the Claretians’ desire to provide resources for pastoral ministers working with Hispanic communities throughout the country. There was, at the time, a great scarcity of materials produced in Spanish in the United States and even fewer that would be considered “culturally appropriate” for the fast-growing population of Catholic Hispanics. About 8,000 parishes in the country had some form of Hispanic ministry but no resources that responded well to the real needs of the people.
It has always been the philosophy of the Center to start with the needs of the Hispanic population in the United States and produce new materials to minister to them, not to translate existing materials nor import Spanish resources from other countries where the language might be the same but the religious experience differs. The attempt, then, has been to speak from the languages and the cultures of the Hispanic community in the United States.
Convivium Press, an editorial endeavor inspired by Judeo-Christian humanistic values, strives to promote diversity of thought and affirms perspectives and proposals that can enrich community togetherness and encourage reconciliation among all peoples.
