The Parish Encuentros are the second stage following the five-sessions of reflection and missionary action carried out by Catholics at the local level. Parishes will then develop a Working Document to help them to better respond to the Hispanic/Latino presence, and to strengthen the ways in which Hispanics/Latinos respond as missionary disciples serving the entire Church in the United States. Parishes will select delegates to represent them at their Diocesan Encuentro with the possibility of being selected to represent their diocese at the Regional Encuentro and their region at the National Event in the fall of 2018. Over 160 dioceses in the United States are participating in the V Encuentro process.
