    The Catholic Archdiocese of Baltimore’s Hispanic Ministry invited the House of Ruth Maryland to share about Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) in the Latino Community during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    We spoke about the difficulties survivors deal with such as: job loss, the constant presence of their abusive partner, food shortage and how to stay healthy in the present environment.

    Are you aware of other religious communities that are addressing IPV in their churches during this pandemic?

    How was this information shared with the ministry? Was this an online presentation? I love this idea.

    The Archdiocese of Baltimore has a weekly meeting with leaders of Spanish speaking parishes (priests. deacons, lay leaders, catechists, etc. Each week they invite speakers to talk about subjects that affect their communities and they are very aware that Intimate Partner Violence. (IPV) needs to be addressed.

    These are Zoom meetings and you can get more information at https://www.archbalt.org/hispanic-ministry/

    I am interested in finding more faith communities that are involved with the issue of Intimate Partner Violence.
