The Diocese of Saint Cloud is hosting back-to-back events this fall inspired by Pope Francis’ call to create a “culture of encounter” to renew and enrich our parishes. On Sept. 24, join Bishop Donald Kettler and keynoter Christina Lamas, executive director of the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministry, for the Diocesan V Encuentro, a gathering to discern ways we can better share the richness of our faith in a journey together with our Hispanic/Latino brothers and sisters. Diocesan Ministry Day follows Sept. 25 with keynoter Bishop Frank Caggiano of Bridgeport, Connecticut, speaking on “Missionary Discipleship.” Workshops throughout the day will focus on a variety of ministry topics. Both days will be held at the River’s Edge Convention Center in St. Cloud and include Mass and exhibits.
