Frequently Asked Questions

General

What is the V Encuentro Guide?

The V Encuentro Guide is an instrument designed to help us live out the missionary process of the V Encuentro. The goal is for leaders of small groups to use this resource in parishes, lay ecclesial movements, small communities, Catholic schools, pastoral institutes, campus ministry settings, organizations, and any other context where Catholics are discerning how to better serve Hispanics/ Latinos while strengthening the ways in which Hispanics/ Latinos respond to the call to the New Evangelization as missionary disciples serving the entire Church.

Parishes

How does our parish receive the V Encuentro Guides?

V Encuentro Guides were mailed out to dioceses that submitted the number of parishes participating in the V Encuentro process. Check with your V Encuentro Diocesan Chairs to obtain your copies. You may be responsible for shipping costs to your parish. Each parish can receive up to 25 Guides.

What if our parish needs more than 25 Copies?

The Guide is available for download at no cost on the V Encuentro website and you are free to print as many copies that your parish may need. Guides will also be available in electronic format on the V Encuentro mobile app to be published in late January/early February. You can purchase additional hard copies for $1.50 each plus shipping and handling via our shop on the USCCB website.

How can our parish order V Encuentro Journals?

Parishes can receive up to 100 free copies of the V Encuentro Journal. You will need to check with your Diocesan V Encuentro Chairs to see if they are ordering the Journals and other materials or if your parish needs to order them.  If your parish will order the Journals, you can order up to 100 free copies plus shipping and handling costs via our shop. Journals ship February 2, 2017.  Parishes can also print their own copies of the booklet by downloading the PDF version available on the V Encuentro website. There will also be an electronic version of the Journal on the Mobile App that participants can use on their tablet or smartphone. Help us go green by encouraging participants to use the digital Journal. The mobile app will be available in late early February.

What if our parish needs more than 100 Copies?

The Journal is available for download at no cost on the V Encuentro website and you are free to print as many copies for your parish. Journals will also be available on the V Encuentro mobile app to be published in late January/early February. You can also purchase additional copies for $0.50 each plus shipping and handling via our shop on the USCCB website. Journals will be mailed in late January 2017.

The Guide states that we need to provide books of the Gospels, wristbands, and crosses. Where can we order them?

Since the Guide was published, there were some edits and some symbols were eliminated. We will no longer be giving out the Book of the Gospels. Please view the Errata Sheet on the website to review all the changes in the printed Guide. The PDF version on the web has already been corrected and is up-to-date.  Crosses and Wristbands can be ordered by visiting our shop on the USCCB website.  Wristbands are now available for order, while crosses can be pre-ordered.

What if we do not have a budget to order resources?

Most resources are free and can be downloaded from the website or will be available on the mobile app. We understand that some parishes have limited resources. We have attempted to keep the cost down while also producing ethical and eco-friendly products that are made in the U.S.

We encourage parishes to purchase of the V Encuentro resources to help build a sense of communion and awareness of the national scope of this endeavor. However, parishes can opt not to purchase certain items or use other items in their place. You can also find a donor to cover the costs of these items.


Dioceses

How do parishes receive the V Encuentro Guides?

Dioceses were asked to submit the number of parishes participating in the V Encuentro process by November 30, 2016. Dioceses that submitted the number of parishes received the Guides in late December. Diocese are responsible for shipping costs and for disseminating the Guides to participating parishes. Diocese can provide each parish 25 Guides. You can also adjust the number of Guides based on the size of the parish. Additional Guides were included for your diocesan team.

What if we have not submitted the number of parishes?

Please submit the number of parishes participating in the V Encuentro process using this online form. Guides will be mailed a few weeks after your submission.

What if the number of parishes changes since we submitted the form and we need additional Guides?

Please submit a new form, but only include the additional number of parishes participating. Packets will then be shipped a few weeks after your submission.  If you need more than 25 per parish, then you can order additional ones via the USCCB Shop.

How can our diocese order the V Encuentro Journals and Resources?

Parishes can receive up to 100 free copies. Dioceses will be asked to inform us how they wish to order in their dioceses using this online form.  They have three options:

  1. They can choose to have Journals and materials sent to the diocese and will be responsible for shipping and handling costs and for the dissemination of the resources to their parishes.
  2. To avoid duplicate mailings and burdening your diocesan budgets, dioceses can select for parishes to order their free copies of the Journal and resources and pay for shipping and handling costs via the USCCB shop.
  3. Dioceses can also print their own copies of the Journal by downloading the PDF version available on the V Encuentro website.

There will also be a digital version on the Mobile App that participants can use on their tablet or smartphone. Help us go green by encouraging use of the digital Journal. The mobile app will be available in early February.  Dioceses will receive one free packet for your diocesan team.
