Over 400 people gathered Sept. 24 in St. Cloud to participate in the diocesan V Encuentro (“fifth encounter”), a national process of discerning ways in which the church in the United States can better respond to the growing Hispanic/Latino presence.
Christina Lamas’ experiences have encouraged her to help others recognize the value of encountering God in the world, which will be part of the message she will bring to the people of the diocese in September.
On Sunday, Sept. 24, Diocesan Encuentro (which means “encounter” in Spanish) will take place at River’s Edge Convention Center in St. Cloud. On the following day, Sept. 25, Diocesan Ministry Day will be held at the convention center.
