Preaching and Worship Resources for Hispanic Heritage Month

From September 15-October 15, we celebrate the rich heritage and cultural contributions of people of the United States who trace their roots to Spain, to Mexico, and to the Spanish-speaking countries of Central America, South America, and the Caribbean. The celebration began as an official weeklong observance in 1968 and was expanded to one month in 1988. Below are links to a number of preaching and worship resources in Spanish or Portuguese to use as resources as you celebrate this month and beyond.

September 15-October 15 is designated as Hispanic Heritage Month in The United Methodist Church, giving local congregations the opportunity to celebrate the importance and contributions of the Hispanic culture in worship. United Methodist publications are rich in musical resources that may be included throughout the year, but especially during this month.
