Congratulations to Angelica Garcia-Randle on being named Diocesan Missioner for Latino Ministries for the Eastern Shore! Her new role offers an opportunity to expand the work begun through our Dos Santos food pantry, tutoring programs and organic garden.This position—the first of its kind in the Episcopal Diocese of Southern Virginia— was formally approved at January’s meeting of the Executive Board in Newport News.
In her new diocesan role, Angelica will make available resources and information for parishes and parish leaders drawn to establishing or cultivating Latino ministries. This includes cultural education and information exchange across the diocese through workshops, site visits, etc. A seven-member Advisory Board for Episcopal Latino Ministries was recently formed to provide oversight and create benchmarks and goals for the venture.
“I’m incredibly honored and grateful to be doing this work that I’m so passionate about,” Angelica says. “Serving the Eastern Shore Latino community and growing the mission in Southern Virginia is a dream come true. I’m thankful to so many people that have supported this ministry along the way.”
