APPLETON -- Some 150 Hispanic youth and young adults from the Green Bay Diocese took part in an unbelievable day at the first ever Diocesan Encuentro Jan. 22 at Xavier High School in Appleton.
They came in response to Bp. David Zubik's invitation "To explore fully how we can help all Hispanic young people feel welcomed, invited and appreciated in the Diocese of Green Bay and global Catholic Church."
Encuentro, Spanish for "encounter," was a part of a much larger organized effort by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and the National Catholic Network de Pastoral Juvenil Hispana to give prominence and special attention to the rapidly growing Catholic Hispanic population in the United States. Half the Latino population -- just over 40 million people in the United States -- is under the age of 30.
The Encuentro and Hispanic Ministry in the Green Bay Diocese are funded in part by the annual Bishop's Appeal. Full story ...
