Opportunities Hispanics Bring to Giving in the Catholic Church

Thousands of Hispanics share their time and talent week after week in all our parishes; however, the concept of stewardship is foreign to Spanish-speaking immigrants.  Hispanics, while willingly meeting the needs of others, may not respond as willingly to direct appeals as a way of using their treasure to give thanks and glory to God.

Join our session “Listen for a Change” and hear what the Diocese of San Bernardino has learned about opportunities Hispanics bring to giving in the Catholic Church.

The Diocese of San Bernardino has a long tradition of welcoming and serving the cultural, ethnic and linguistic diversity of all its faithful while strengthening the unity of the One Body of Christ.  It has done so by providing specific formation that meets the needs of diverse groups.

The Office of Mission Advancement, the fundraising arm, sees evangelization as essential to the mission of the Church and seeks to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to those who want to grow in their relationship with God. They dedicate effort to providing formation that strengthens that bond for Hispanics and people across all cultures.


Oportunidades que los Hispanos Aportan al Apoyo Económico en la Iglesia Católica

 Miles de hispanos comparten su tiempo y talento semana tras semana en todas nuestras parroquias; sin embargo, el concepto de la corresponsabilidad les resulta ajeno a los inmigrantes de habla hispana.  Los hispanos, aunque voluntariamente satisfacen las necesidades de otros, podrían no responder con la misma voluntad a las colectas directas como una manera de utilizar su tesoro para dar gracias y gloria a Dios. 

 Asistan a nuestra sesión “Listen for a Change” y escuchen lo que la Diócesis de San Bernardino ha descubierto sobre las oportunidades que los hispanos aportan al apoyo económico en la Iglesia Católica.

 La Diócesis de San Bernardino tiene una larga tradición de acoger y servir a la diversidad cultural, étnica y lingüística de todos sus fieles a la vez que fortalece la unidad de todos como Un Cuerpo de Cristo.  Lo ha hecho proporcionando una formación específica que satisfaga las necesidades de diversos grupos. 

La Oficina de Mission Advancement, encargada de la recaudación de fondos, considera que la evangelización es esencial para la misión de la Iglesia y procura llevar la Buena Noticia de Jesucristo a quienes desean crecer en su relación con Dios.  Dedican sus esfuerzos a brindar formación que fortalezca ese vínculo para los hispanos y personas de todas las culturas.
