The National Catholic Association of Diocesan Directors for Hispanic Ministry,
in communion with the bishops of the United States, supports, provides resources, and assists in the on-going professional development of Hispanic Ministry diocesan staff, in order to facilitate full participation of Hispanics in the mission of the Church and society.
The purpose of our association is to create a ministry of collaboration. We engage in reflection and planning of Hispanic Ministry and provide continuing formation for diocesan directors serving in the United States. We provide assistance to our members while finding mutual support, recognition and acceptance. We develop a common ministerial vision while supporting the "Memoria Historica" of the Encuentros.
The board members affirm the reality of the church in the United States and support the reality of rich cultural diversity, and we continue to promote unity in pluralism as an expression of our catholicity. We thrive to assist Hispanics in the process of integration into the total life of the Church in society serving as missionary disciples.
