The Latino Ministry Commission continues to expand the worship services available in Spanish at the Latino Ministry Center in Forest Park, now offering services monthly. Additional services were provided during Lent and Holy Week this year, with the support of the Rev. Paula Jackson, rector of the Church of Our Saviour/La Iglesia de Nuestro Salvador, and coordinated by Carlos de Jesus, volunteer in charge at the Latino Ministry Center. Two services for Imposition of Ashes were provided on Ash Wednesday. Palm Sunday was celebrated with both the Liturgy of the Palms and the Passion reading by members of the congregation. A Good Friday liturgy and Easter services also were held. As a more continuous flow of worship opportunities are provided to the families who use the other LMC services, such as the Homework Club, the potential for this community builds. Attention to the various holy occasions of most significance to the Latino communities has been rewarded by steady attendance by some core families in the Forest Park area.
