Challenging us to set aside our typecasts and seize new opportunities, The Episcopal Church's Strategic Vision for Reaching Latinos/Hispanics conveys the opportunities for the Episcopal Church within the growing Latino/Hispanic population. “Such radically changing demographics should encourage the church to be courageous, resourceful, passionate and enthusiastic in its response to these new circumstances.” We can grow vibrant and fruitful churches by inviting the Latino/Hispanic community to a welcoming and inclusive environment, sharing our rich liturgy and implementing innovative and pertinent programs.
