About The Hispanic Latino Presbyterian Women (HLPW):

HLPW is made up of women with origins in different countries and diverse backgrounds. Some of them are immigrants to the United States of America from Mexico, Central America, South America and the Caribbean. Many live outside the Continent and The United States in Puerto Rico. The bond that unites them in song and prayer is their love of God, our church, our Hispanic Latin people and the Spanish and Portuguese language, our common Latin roots.
