What is Migrant Ministry?
Migrant Ministry is supported by various parishes within the Archdiocese of Vancouver. This initiative began within the Office of Service and Justice and continues to expand as this ministry consists of the Hispanic Community and the Temporary Foreign Workers.
As Christians, we are called to reach out to and pray for all migrants to emphasize the unity of the human family and the values of acceptance, hospitality, and love of neighbour.
A leadership team was formed to support this ministry, shepherded by our Hispanic Coordinator Father Richard Zanotti, CS.
Therefore, the purpose of Migrant ministry is to:
- Share our joy and hopes with our brothers and sisters in Christ
- Support newcomers in their grief and pain
- Focus our attention on assisting Migrants to integrate into society and the Church
