Hispanic Community Support & Ministry
There is an active and vibrant ministry to Spanish-speaking and Hispanic communities in CT. The clergy serving Spanish Language congregations/communities meet regularly. The Rev. Dana Campbell, Priest in Charge at Holy Trinity, Middletown is the convener of that group. Visit the "Reports" pages for the Annual Convention to read their annual reports.

Networks and Contacts:
The Hispanic Ministry Network: The Hispanic Ministry Network has existed for many years as the Spanish Language Ministries Group. We are a collaboration of all the ECCT worshiping communities and groups ministering among Spanish speakers and culturally Latino/Hispanic peoples. We meet as a clergy support group monthly, coordinate retreats and workshops, and strive to make visible the many Hispanic Episcopalians in our midst. We routinely share multicultural resources for liturgy and education. We collaborate with the ECCT’s Liturgy & Music Commission and Convention Planning Team in designing ECCT-wide events which are welcoming to our Spanish-speaking brothers and sisters in Christ. We keep the Lutheran Synod and parish leadership abreast of our work, and hope to share in leadership training with them. We have worked successfully with the ECCT Commission on Ministry (COM) to identify potential Spanish-speaking candidates for ordination to the Deaconate and Priesthood, and to create a process for their education. We are available to consult with anyone in the ECCT or beyond about our experiences and resources. Our contact person and Convener is The Rev. Dana L. Campbell, who can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
