What is Encounter?
Encounter began as a collaborative effort of a group of inspired people in the Diocese of Green Bay who all want to bring an experience of prayer through the Sacraments and music to all people. Sponsored by the Diocese of Green Bay, particularly the Department of New Evangelization and the Office of Young Adult Ministry, the first Encounter was launched on November 2, 2013, and will travel to different parishes throughout the diocese every other month. A night of Encounter includes Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, Praise & Worship music led by various bands, Reconciliation by multiple priests, a reflection by a priest, individual prayer with a member of the prayer team, and concludes with fellowship and refreshments. Encounter gives people an opportunity to encounter Christ through many different forms, as well as meeting other people from the area.
