When we were first praying and designing the Encounter Houston Conference, we knew that it had to be different, it had to be attractive, it had to be truly life giving. What we came up with over the past two years honestly looks more like a party or a vacation than your typical Catholic conference. For a venue, we chose a resort… downtown… with a Texas-shaped lazy river. For a ministry team, we chose those who would ignite joy in our hearts, rather than shame. For a schedule, we think that relaxation and rest is paramount, and is actually more important to the soul, than a day packed full of head knowledge and content.
We truly hope you join us. Whether you are a young family with kids (we have a camp for the kids!), a grandparent, a student just finishing college, or a young professional. Whether you haven’t been to church in years or discerning religious life. You have a place at Encounter! We are about community coming together to enjoy three days of relaxation, worship and a life giving Encounter with Jesus.
