This day-long retreat will explore prayer and mission in our communities, including a focus on Hispanic/Latino and other demographic communities in the church. You'll grow in both faith and understanding. This retreat is part of Marquette’s participation in the V Encuentro process.

The V Encuentro is a four-year process of ecclesial reflection and action that invites Catholics in the United States to consultation, leadership development, and identification of best ministerial practices in the spirit of the New Evangelization.

The V Encuentro starts at the grassroots level, namely in small groups in parishes, schools, movements, and other Catholic organizations, reflecting on what is needed to better serve the fast-growing Hispanic population in local communities and movements in light of the theme: Missionary Disciples: Witnesses of God’s Love. All leaders in (arch)dioceses, parishes, lay ecclesial movements and other Catholic organizations and institutions have been invited to participate by reaching out to Hispanic/Latino Catholics, particularly those living in the periphery, through the missionary process of evangelization and consultation of the V Encuentro.

Open to:

All students of the Marquette community, undergraduate and graduate.


The retreat take place in Straz Tower.


Meet in Straz Tower at 12:00 pm. The retreat will end at 7:00 pm.


Registration for the V Encuentro retreat is now closed.
