1972- I Encuentro
1977 – II Encuentro
1985 – III Encuentro
The III Encuentro (1985) allowed us to raise our voice to articulate a clear direction of the Church’s response to the Hispanic presence and our response as Church. This vision was recorded in the Plan Pastoral Nacional del Ministerio Hispano (1987) and in a model of a Church that is evangelizing, communal, and missionary.
Primer Encuentro Nacional Hispano de Pastoral Juvenil
The Primer Encuentro Nacional Hispano de Pastoral Juvenil (2006) allowed us to listen to the voices of Hispanic/Latino youth and to discern the best ways to respond to their needs and aspirations, as well as to recognize their contributions as privileged protagonists of the present and future Church in the United States.
