OCP Pledges to Support the V Encuentro

PORTLAND, Ore., Aug. 27, 2015 /Christian Newswire/ -- The OCP board of directors approved a Padrino partnership with The National Team of Accompaniment towards the V Encuentro (ENHAVE), pledging $175,000 to the process.

"OCP is honored to support the V Encuentro. We look forward to partnering with the USCCB to advance the evangelizing mission of the Church among our Latino brothers and sisters over the next three years - and beyond," said OCP's Publisher, John Limb.

The V Encuentro Nacional Hispano/Latino de Pastoral is a three-year process of pastoral-theological reflection culminating with a national event. The process includes leadership development and formation, and identifies the needs of the Hispanic Catholics in the United States and how to address them. The outcome of the process is shared through Encuentro (gatherings) at the parish, diocesan, regional and national level, and articulated in a concluding document with pastoral guidelines and recommendations.

As a Padrino partner, OCP will support the V Encuentro by simultaneously educating customers through a variety of channels: Articles in "Today's Liturgy" and "Liturgia y Cancion," a significant web presence on OCP.org and event support materials and resources. OCP is honored to also prepare liturgy and music for Encuentro gatherings and train music leaders in the Encuentro process.

The highest of four levels of partnership, a Padrino precedes Compadres, Amigos, and Compañeros partnership levels. In seeking sponsors, ENHAVE only sought out four Padrino partnerships for the Encuentro process and welcomes OCP as the third organization to pledge.

EHNHAVE expects participation from over 1 million Catholics over the five-year process.
