NCCHM was formed in 1991 to have a broadly-based network to share mutual concerns with its member organizations. Given the diversity of the United States Hispanic Catholic communities such an umbrella organization is essential if the problems and possibilities of these groups are to be effectively articulated and communicated within church and society. The main purpose of NCCHM is to serve its member organizations and help make a positive impact on Hispanic ministry.
Today, more than ever, it is extremely urgent that we establish networks; work together; share our knowledge; renew, once again, the ideal and practice of Pastoral de Conjunto; and walk together for good of the Body of Christ present in the United States. The creation of this website provides us with the means and support for the enormous and amazing task we are involved in.
