The Archdiocese of Hartford and the Dioceses of Bridgeport, Norwich and Springfield will celebrate the Regional Encuentro on May 12, 2018 at the Archdiocesan Center at Saint Thomas Seminary, in Bloomfield, CT.
This is one more step towards the National V Encuentro that it will take place in September 20-24 in Grapevine, Texas.
Inspired by the example of Jesus and the call of Pope Francis, the United States Bishops have called the Hispano/Latino Catholic communities to lead the faithful by example, going out as missionary disciples, reaching out to others and accompanying them in their daily lives and faith. This is a time to motivate the youth to participate actively in the life of the Church, and to invite them to prepare to become leaders in the faith for the present and future. It is a time to recognize the gifts of the Hispano/Latino community to the Catholic Church in the US and to provide them with the resources and formation to continue their journey of faith.
This is an important moment for the faithful in the Archdiocese of Hartford; as the journey continues the Regional Encuentro needs your support. Please pray for the success of the Regional V Encuentro and the delegates who are participating. Some will be chosen to attend the National V Encuentro.
