Hispanic Ministry Update by Alejandro Siller-Gonzalez
Alejandro Siller-Gonzalez, vice president of the Federation of Pastoral Institutes and Congar Institute’s Resource Person, attended the ENAVE (National Team of Accompaniment for the V Encuentro) meeting in July 2017 and is happy to report that the V Encuentro is having positive results and impact within the Hispanic community in the Church. The V Encuentro has motivated a new sense of community and more latinos are involved in leadership and development and more present in ministries.
Alejandro also reflected on the Convocation of Catholic Leaders and he identifies two outcomes. First, that leaders will be equipped and re-energized to share the Gospel as missionary disciples, and, second, that they will take away fresh insights from participation in a strategic conversation about current challenges and opportunities informed by new research, communications strategies, and successful models.
