Pastoral Agents in Hispanic Ministry share resources, leadership and prayer


By Barb Arland-Fye

Fr. Juarez

Each month, for the past 15 years or so, a group of clergy and women religious engaged in ministry to Spanish-speaking people get together to support one another in their ministry. “We meet to share resources; we meet to provide leadership for the pastoral needs of the Spanish-speaking, and we pray together,” said Father Rudolph Juarez, vicar of Hispanics for the Diocese of Davenport.
Fr. Juarez, who also serves as pastor of St. Patrick Parish in Iowa City, convenes the monthly meetings of the Pastoral Agents in Hispanic Ministry at St. Patrick’s, generally on the third Wednesday of the month at 10 a.m. The pastoral agents represent Spanish-speaking people in Clinton, Columbus Junction, Davenport, Iowa City, Mount Pleasant, Muscatine, Ottumwa, Washington and West Liberty.
