into the full life of the Archdiocese of Atlanta: every parish, mission, and office
respond to their pastoral needs including the poor, the undocumented,
the migrant worker, the most vulnerable (women and children,) the youth and
young adults, and the incarcerated.
The Hispanic Ministry Office (HMO) is a resource for archdiocesan offices,
Parishes, and Missions. The Mission of the HMO is to assist and support them,
based on the principle of “Pastoral de Conjunto” (Communion
in Mission) by modeling and promoting a collaborative ministry with Hispanics
as an effective vehicle for carrying out the mission of the Church with a strong
commitment for social justice and advocacy.
