Where we

Minister

In our Province we serve in the following places across the U.S., particularly in high-poverty, urban areas:

 

Corpus Christi

Stone Mountain, GA

http://www.corpuschristicc.org/ 

 

Corpus Christi is one of the most diverse parishes we serve. Its almost 1,600 families come from over 60 countries and include Native Americans, Asians, Caribbeans, Hispanics, Africans, African Americans, Europeans, and white Americans. We also help the large number of refugees in our parish establish themselves in this country.

 

Holy Cross/Immaculate Heart of Mary

Chicago, IL

http://www.hcihm.org/

 

This parish is located in the primarily Mexican-American neighborhood of Back of the Yards—a mostly young, immigrant, low-income, working-class community. Our robust youth program serves hundreds of neighborhood youth and their families each year.

 

Immaculate Heart of Mary

San Antonio, TX

http://www.ihmsatx.org/

 

In 1902, the Claretians arrived in San Antonio from Mexico and in 1912 built this parish. The church itself has since been designated a Historic Exceptional Landmark by the city of San Antonio. Today the parish brings in people from a wide area of the surrounding community.

 

Our Lady of Fatima

Perth Amboy, NJ

https://www.facebook.com/OurLadyOfFatimaParishInPerthAmboy

 

We began our ministry at Our Lady of Fatima in the 1940s. In the years since, we have attended to the needs of a growing Hispanic population and are currently one of only two Hispanic parishes in the area. Many of our parishioners could be classified as “working poor.”

 

 

Our Lady of Guadalupe

Chicago, IL

https://www.facebook.com/OLGChicago

 

This parish serves an immigrant Hispanic community on the southeast side of Chicago. Like many Claretian parishes, at OLG we deal with poverty, gangs, drugs, domestic violence, and unemployment. Our church is also the home of the National Shrine of St. Jude that is visited by thousands of people every year.

 

Nuestra Señora de la Esperanza 

Ciudad Juarez, Mexico

 

We began our ministry in this parish along the border in 2000 as an inter-provincial partnership with the Claretian Province of Mexico. This parish serves families that have migrated to the border in search of employment primarily in the mega-factories employing the poorest of the poor at substandard wages.

 

Sacred Heart

Springfield, MO

http://www.sacredheartch.org/

 

Sacred Heart pulls parishioners from a large, diverse geographic area; some parish members come from as far as 30 miles away to worship with us. We’ve also become a center for the rapidly-growing Hispanic population in the area.

 

Sacred Heart

Prescott, AZ

http://www.sacredheartprescott.com

 

We began our ministry at Sacred Heart—the oldest parish in the Diocese of Phoenix—in 1915. We minister to a diverse range of parishioners, from older Anglo members to younger Hispanic families who come from all around the region to participate in our Spanish services and programs.

 

 

 

San Gabriel Mission

San Gabriel, CA

http://sangabrielmissionchurch.org/

 

We arrived at the mother of the California Missions in 1908 to further the charism of our founder by restoring, rebuilding, and revitalizing the spiritual life of the parish. Today in this multicultural parish, we offer programs and services in English, Spanish, and Vietnamese.

 

 

 

St. Anthony Mary Claret

Fresno, CA

http://www.stanthonyclaretfresno.org/

 

We built this parish in 1951 to minister to the English and Spanish-speaking community in and around Fresno. Today our parish serves between 1,500 and 2,000 families, most of which are Hispanic. Our ministries include help for immigrants and leadership development.

 

 

 

St. Catherine Laboure

Chino Valley, AZ

http://www.stcatherinecv.org/

 

This parish started humbly in 1972 with fewer than 20 practicing families and has grown through the years to serve over 500 Catholic families. We have an active parish life and continue to serve the members of the greater community through service and providing funding for special projects.

 

 

Chapel of the Martyrs of Barbastro
