You are invited to participate in
V Encuentro here at St. Didacus Parish
This year during Lent at St. Didacus, we will be uniting with about 6000 other parishes across the country to experience in a small group format a time of reflection and action. V Encuentro is an opportunity open to all Catholics in the United States in parishes with a Hispanic community. For more information, go to The themes of the five sessions are inspired by Pope Francis in The Joy of the Gospel.
Thursday, March 23 • Walking together with Jesus
Thursday, March 30 • Bearing fruits of new life
Thursday, April 6 • Celebrating the joy of being missionary disciples
We will meet in the Parish Hall
at 7PM. All are welcome. The sessions will last about an hour and a half. We will break into two groups: one conducted in English and one in Spanish. For those unable to get out at night, we also have morning sessions available on Tuesdays at 9am: March 21, 28 & April 4. This would be a great way to be an ambassador of Christ during Lent. Each participant will receive a booklet and there is no charge for this program. Come and join us on the journey!
