Office of Hispanic Ministry
The mission of Hispanic Ministry of the Diocese of Pueblo is the response of the Church to the blessing of a growing Hispanic community in our diocese. The Office of Hispanic Ministry assists the Hispanic community living and working in Colorado by focusing our efforts to introduce the community to a personal encounter with Christ and to promote and facilitate the full participation of Hispanic Catholics in the Church's life and mission.

 


The Hispanic Affairs Project (HAP)is a nonprofit organization working to promote the integration of Latino immigrants in Western Colorado through leadership development, advocacy and providing key services. 

The Hispanic Affairs Project (HAP) was created in 2005 by Hispanic immigrant leaders from the communities of Grand Junction, Delta, Olathe, Montrose and Hotchkiss. These first-generation leaders participated in faith formation programs within the Catholic Church, and realized the need to reach a rapidly changing population. Addressing the needs of the new Hispanic immigrant community in the Western Slope led to action, organization, and the formation of HAP.

Nationally, the immigrant rights movement ignited around comprehensive immigration reform and HAP members worked tirelessly for federal legislation to address the broken immigration system. Improving the challenges faced by immigrant families, such as lack of integration, social inequalities, and limited opportunities for economic development, remains the focus of our work. At the local, state and federal level, we advocate for pro-immigrant policy changes that protect and defend immigrants. We are grateful to fill a unique niche in the region, and are proud of our achievements made for and by the Hispanic community.
