ONE WORLD ENCOUNTER

in the Love of God

• Unifying around common mission

An initiative to nurture a spirit of mutual respect among diverse and sometimes adversarial groups of people in our congregations and our communities.

The Comboni Missionary Sisters have had a very long and widespread impact throughout the world for more than a hundred years. This bold new ministry in the United States can build greater understanding, healing, hope, relationships and a sense of common mission in parish communities and their neighborhoods.

One World Encounter.

in the Love of God

CORE VALUES
Building Spaces of Encounter

Meet a significant need in the world:
uniting people, breaking down divisions,
building a more caring city, forging a new spirit
of authentic welcome, teaching the power of diversity.

Draw people into a greater faithfulness
inspired by the love of God,
retaining the highest respect for people
of different cultures and faiths.

Two
Models.

1) Intercultural Congregation Model

 One World Encounter Groups creates small group experiences within intercultural parishes or congregations.

2) Interfaith Neighborhood Model

 One World Encounter Groups creates small group experiences by bringing together members from various faith communities located in the same neighborhood. 

HOW
IT WILL
WORK.

Partnerships will be created with church and community leaders to promote participation.

Faith Leaders will be engaged
to recruit a coordinator
and a small team to help
organize and promote the initiative.

Following a Saturday experience of encounter, small groups will be launched to meet on their own over a five-week period.

The groups will grow in their relationships, deepen their understanding, and collaborate to create some project involving awareness building, advocacy or action in the community.

The experience would be shared using social media tools to expand awareness and demonstrate the power and impact of bringing people together at the grassroots level.
