Hispanic Ministry

  Bilingual-Hispanic Mass Sunday at 1 PM

The Hispanic Ministry is a house of friendship and hospitality, located at 22 5th Avenue North, Cold Spring, MN 56320. It functions under the direction of the outreach program at St. Boniface Parish in Cold Spring, Minnesota.

Origins of the Hispanic Ministry

In February of 1996, there was a recognizable increase in the number of Hispanics living and working in Cold Spring and surrounding area. After relationships with Hispanics began to form, Francisco Schulte OSB, Renee Domeier OSB, and others saw the need to work toward integration within the parish and community. In July of 1998, a mobile home was rented to serve as a central meeting place for members of these two cultures.

In 2004, the ministry was moved to its present location in a small house across the street from St. Boniface Church. Present ministries include Spanish Mass, sacramental preparation, English classes, interpreting, children activities, job referrals, social services, and advocacy.

The Multicultural Communities (CGMC) seves the growing needs of the Latino communities of Stearns, Sherburne and Benton County.  For sixteen years CGMC has been providing services to the public, aiding with referrals, having educational workshops and engaging the community in civic and economic participation. CGMC is the only Latino resource center in over 16 counties in Central Minnesota that advocates and directly works to empower the Latino community.

Espaņol

"la morenita"
la morenita

...You are no longer
foreigners and aliens,
but fellow citizens with  
God's people and
members of God's household...
with Christ Jesus Himself
as the chief cornerstone...

In Him you are being built
together to become a dwelling
in which God lives by His Spirit!

Ephesians 2:19+
