Funded largely by the annual Catholic Appeal, the Office of Hispanic Ministry assists the Hispanic community living and working in Maine by offering sacramental preparation, including marriage and baptismal preparation; faith formation for adults and children; education on social service support in the state; and help to individuals and families in becoming more involved in parish life. Sacred Heart/St. Dominic Parish is the home for Hispanic Ministry for the Greater Portland area. The parish’s food pantry distributes close to 3,000 pounds of food each week.
