Emproistas from across the United States attend the Encuentro Nacional (National Encounter) to share experiences of their journey, as well as to analyze the reality and deepen their Christian commitment. This event is part of Encounters of Youth Promotion (Encuentros de Promoción Juvenil - EPJ), a Catholic young adult (ages 18-27) experience of service and evangelization in which each participant experiences a process of conversion within the dynamics of the triple encounter: with him/herself, others and God. EPJ is a shared experience because Christian life is communal as well as personal. It proposes some objectives and uses its own methods and systems, according to what is established in the Manual of Encounters of Youth Promotion. It is modeled after Cursillo and presented in Spanish. For more information, contact Sr. Ana Luisa Diaz Vazquez, MCP, associate director of Hispanic youth ministry, at (501) 664-0340, ext. 320.
