VEIL Latino Ministry

VEIL is a Congregation Under Development in partnership with the ELCA Churchwide Office and the Southern Ohio Synod.

The VEIL community is a diverse, bilingual, Christian Latino community, open to all people. Our mission is to be a witness of God’s unconditional love — striving to empower a worshiping environment, fostering love for our neighbor through teaching, caring relationships — welcoming the creativity of the Holy Spirit in conversation and action.

Somos una comunidad de Latinos Cristianos – diversos, bilingüe, abierta a todas las personas. Nuestra misión es ser un testigo del amor incondicional de Dios, intentando a potenciar un ambiente de alabanza a Dios, fomentando el amor por nuestro prójimo a través de relaciones bondadosas y estudiosos, dando la bienvenida a la creatividad del Espíritu Santo a través de la conversación y la acción.

It is under the leadership of Deaconess Carmen Colón-Brown.

  • Moms program that supports pregnant women and moms with children. 
  • Sunday tutoring program is a bridge program that allows students to continue reading and learning during the summer.
  • Interns from Miami University engage with students in the community.

    Our diaper drawer is completely full! Many thanks to those who have contributed to our Mothers’ Ministry program! There still exists a need for:

    — Baby Wipes (especially refills in soft plastic packages)

    — 100% Juice boxes

    — Tampons (plastic only)

    — Feminine pads (THIN Regular and THIN Overnight)

    Please place your items in the VEIL Office.

    A very easy way to help support VEIL: If you shop at Kroger, please sign up with their Community Rewards program & choose VEIL as the group you’d like to support. Our number is 29572. A percentage of all that you spend at Kroger is given to the mission church. Last quarter, VEIL received almost $100 from this program. Please consider signing up.
