The Fifth National Encuentro of Hispanic/Latino Ministry (V Encuentro) convened in September 2018 in the context of the New Evangelization with “missionary discipleship” as the central focus. Through the methodology of seeing, judging, acting, celebrating, and evaluating, a top recommendation to come from the proceedings of V Encuentro was to “Strengthen the family as a promoter of evangelization and mission”. *
Forming Ministers of God’s Love: Catholic Parenting in the Domestic Church was created as a direct response to this call. The focus of this Scripture-based program is to empower parents as loving leaders in their homes and to strengthened them in their roles as ministers of the domestic church.
