The Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA invites military young adults and families to participate in the Fifth National Encuentro of Hispanic/Latino Ministry (V Encuentro) by taking the online course titled Missionary Disciples: Witnesses of God’s Love. The first course began on April 23, 2017. The next cycle begins September 2nd and goes for five weeks (Sep 2 – Oct 6).
In collaboration with the University of Dayton’s Virtual Learning Community for Faith Formation (VLCFF), the Archdiocese has adapted the five-consultation catechesis of the Fifth Encuentro into a five-week interactive online course (English and Spanish). The course will invite participants to prayerfully reflect, to go out to do missionary activity and to provide consultation based upon the following five topics:
- Week 1: Called to a Loving Encounter with Jesus in the Church
- Week 2: With Words and Actions: Do It!
- Week 3: Walking Together with Jesus
- Week 4: Bearing Fruits of New Life
- Week 5: Celebrating the Joy of Being Missionary Disciples
