Connect with our Latino/Hispanic Neighbors at New Camino

Friday, June 21 at 5 p.m. to Saturday, June 22 at 3:30 p.m. at Trinity Episcopal Church, Asheville. Do you want to know how your congregation can connect with your Latino/Hispanic neighbors? New Camino is an Episcopal program for clergy, vestry and lay leaders that explores the changing face, cultural backgrounds, interests and needs of Latino/a communities, while also welcoming, serving, and involving them in our Congregational Life and Ministry.

Presented by Bishop José McLoughlin and the diocese and led by the Rev. Anthony Guillén, Missioner for Latino/Hispanic Ministries, this program is specifically designed to introduce diocesan, clergy and parish lay leaders to the broad landscape of Latino ministry, taking into account the current and socio-demographic trends of Latinos. According to Guillén: "We must now be culturally competent to distinguish the linguistic and socio-cultural propensities found in most Latino communities, and what it takes to evangelize them."

Cost for the conference is $60.00, which covers dinner on Friday, and morning/afternoon snacks & lunch on Saturday.
