I belong to an Episcopal parish. An Episcopal priest, a legal immigrant born in Ecquador, has approached us to start a congregation at our church serving the local Hispanics. We think it’s a fine idea. They will conduct services according to the rites of the church in Spanish. No one’s going to be checking immigration status at the parish door, or at the altar rail. Our main concern is that they involve themselves in the life of the parish. We are not interested in “renting” space to them and having them be separate. If they involve themselves in the life of the parish then they will be welcome. IF they hold themselves separate then they will have to leave.
what is going on is that a lot of Hispanics will join that church thinking it is a Catholic church. (some Lutheran churches do this too).
It’s called truth in advertising.
