Quinto Encuentro



The main goal of the V Encuentro is to discern ways in which the Church in the United States can better respond to the Hispanic/Latino presence and to strengthen the ways in which Hispanics/Latinos respond to the call to the New Evangelization as missionary disciples serving the entire Church.

The process designed to achieve this goal is rooted in the life of the local Church as Catholic parishes, schools, institutions, organizations, service agencies, and the like gather to enter a process of consultation, sending forth community participants to engage local Hispanics/Latinos, especially those living in the peripheries.

On April 27, Paulist Father Ricky Manalo’s keynote presentation addressed changing trends in religious practices today, and how those changes inform the study of religion in the classroom. With the rise of digital media, he said there has been a decline in traditional religious identity, as expressed through belief, belonging and behavior. The result has been a growing body of “nones,” those who claim no religious affiliation.

On April 28, Father Manalo conducted a workshop entitled “Put Out Into the Deep: Proclaiming Christ in a Postmodern World.”
