(NC) - Bishop Roger Mahony of Stockton has appealed to members of his diocese to be sensitive to Hispanic culture in an effort to meet the pastoral needs of Hispanic Catholics. In a pastoral letter, Bishop Mahony noted that Hispanic Catholics of Mexican descent comprise about 16 per cent of the total population of the diocese and about 45 per cent of the Catholic population. "We have never experienced in our diocese such a rapid influx of one ethnic group," be said. "Their faith is strong, but their pastoral needs are also great. The history, culture and religiosity which animate their lively faith need to be known and shared. Their past and present contributions to the life of the church here deserve to be appreciated. "The pastoral needs of our Hispanic Catholics are very great," the bishop con- tinued, "because they are arriving in in- Conway 00nopping ]DRUMMOND CITIZENS INSURANCE CO. Insure for the Purpose.

Since our state borders with Mexico, many families come and go rather easily, but without Spanish-speaking priests, brothers and sisters to minister to them." Noting the growth of the Hispanic population in the Stockton Diocese, in California and throughout the United States, Bishop Mahony said, "In justice, the church must help teach its people to appreciate the many gifts which not only Hispanics, but all racial, cultural and ethnic peoples bring to both church and society. This is an urgent task today, when difficult economic con- ditions tend to pit these groups against one another as they try to make do in an age of scarcity and while still other groups seek to sow further dissension with anti-Christian prejudices and outright racism." Noting too the influx of migrants, im- migrants and refugees from Latin America, Southeast Asia and the Middle East, Bishop Mahony said, "How we accept those who are different from ourselves measures not only our Christian belief that we are all brothers and sisters, but also our conviction as church that in God's house there can be no strangers., Many Hispanic Catholics want to lend their historical, cultural and religious gifts to build up and enrich the church, the bishop said. The church "also seeks," he said, "to respond to its Catholics of Mexican ancestry in the best possible way: with their own core cultural symbols. They reveal the soul and the heart of a people, who they are and what they feel and believe deeply. Indeed, God's presence is most clearly revealed through the signs and symbols of cultures."
