Most Reverend Arturo Cepeda“The New Evangelization impels us to continue joyfully responding to the Spirit that never ceases to stimulate our communities to a deep conversion. Our call to celebrate the Gospel and to proclaim it to all our communities is at the very core of the creative ministry of the FIP.  With years of Hispanic experience the Federation will continue to respond to the challenges of today’s world and will continue to serve by offering excellent faith, academic, and ministerial formation to our communities and beyond.”

What People are saying about FIP

Alejandro Siller"The annual FIP gatherings help me to bring new life and light to my vocation of pastoral ministry to the People of God from the Hispanic experience. Our gatherings are an integration of the wisdom from our 'community history' and the new evangelization we are all called to. It is an encounter with new and old FIP members, all with a variety of rich faith filled pastoral ministry experiences from which we all learn. MACC, the institution I serve is enriched by my learning in FIP gatherings.

"The annual FIP gatherings are an encounter  of brothers and sisters in Christ, a place where I learn more about my faith and my pastoral ministry. We learn from each other about how to integrate the growing diversity of ethnic groups and cultures in our communities.  We make new contacts for our mutual support in our pastoral ministry. We relate to each other with respect and as persons in need of one another"
