The Episcopal Church in Minnesota is a multicultural community of faith communities that reflects the diverse ethnic realities of Minnesota, where all faith communities are empowered to have a shared voice within a culture of mutual accountability. Given the increasing populations of immigrants through the state, there are numerous opportunities before us to develop ethnic-specific as well as multicultural faith communities. Below are some of Minnesota’s faith communities helping to achieve this goal.
El Santo Niño Jesús
El Santo Niño Jesús is a resilient community of faith serving the Spanish speaking population of the Twin Cities as well as those interested in joining a Spanish-speaking faith community. Its core leadership functions in ways similar to a Total Ministry team and it has been a hub for other forms of ministry to Spanish speaking immigrants. The Rev. Néptali Rodríguez serves as Vicar. For more information, visit santonino-mn.org.
Worship is held primarily in Spanish at 12pm on Sundays.
Holy Apostles is the church where Hmong, white, African, Latin, and Native American Christians try to love and live together in the One Body of Christ. They are the church that carries on in the teaching of the Holy Apostles themselves, in the breaking of bread together, and in prayer. They are the people who seek to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with God.Take part some time at Holy Apostles as our selves, the Bible, ancient Tradition, and Reason come together in our worship and service. For more information, visit www.holyapostles-stpaul.org.
Worship is held in English at 9am and in Hmong at 11am on Sundays.
San Jose Obrero
La Misión el San Jose Obrero serves Latino-American migrants who work at the Seneca Plant in Montgomery, Minnesota during the summer months. Episcopalians support this ministry of hospitality by organizing two Eucharists and a meal every Sunday during corn and pea pack at the plant. In 2008 our ECMN Convention welcomed San Jose Obrero as a Special Mission of the Episcopal Church in Minnesota.
Worship is held in Spanish during the summer months on Sunday evenings.
