V Encuentro

Sacred Heart Church invites you to participate in the V Encuentro!

The History of the V Encuentro


The process of Encuentro for Hispanic/Latino ministry has been deeply ecclesial.  It is motivated by reading the signs of the times and convened by the bishops, who call the Hispanic/Latino community to raise their voices.  In the context of this dialogue among the bishops and the community, we live a spirit of pastoral ministry illuminated by an ecclesiological communion and missionary vocation that seeks to reach out to those who find themselves estranged from the life and vision of the Church.  The main objective of the process of the Encuentro is to discern the way in which Hispanics/Latinos respond as Church.

La Iglesia del Sagrado Corazon te invita a participar en el V Encuentro!

Memoria Historica  
El Proceso de Encuentro en la pastoral hispana/latina ha sido una vivencia profundamente eclesial. Es motivado por la lectura de los signos de los tiempos y convocado por los obispos, quienes llaman al pueblo hispano/latino à elevar su voz profética. En el contexto de este diálogo entre los obispos y el pueblo se vive una pastoral de conjunto iluminada por una eclesiología de comunión y una vocación misionera que busca llegar hasta aquellos que se encuentran alejados de la vida y de la visión de la iglesia. El objetivo central del Proceso de Encuentro es discernir la respuesta pastoral de la iglesia hacia la presencia hispana/latina y potenciar la respuesta del pueblo hispano/latino como iglesia.
