Jun 23 2011
The Hispanic community in the Archdiocese of Baltimore has grown significantly in the past 10 years. According to the 2010 Census data there has been a 152 percent increase in the population. This is from approximately 58,000 in 2000 to 146,000 in 2010. Conservative estimates affirm that 70 percent of this population is Catholic. The growth has been visible in the 18 parishes with Hispanic ministry. With this new influx of Hispanics, comes a vibrancy and creativity that enriches the whole church.
