From Encounter to Accompaniment

Posted August 22, 2017 by in Events

The Leadership Institute is collecting stories about the way people encounter the person of Jesus Christ. Do you have a story to share?

We all encounter Jesus in different ways: through the birth of a child, the loss of a loved one, through nature, music, or even travel. Through joy or sorry, triumph or tragedy. We even experience Jesus when we help a stranger, or when we are present and aware of moment of grace.

Think about a time you encountered the person of Jesus and tell us that story.

These stories of three to five minutes will be a part of a new series: From Encounter to Accompaniment. Your story may help someone else come to experience Jesus. Your story may accompany another on their own journey of faith. Your story may be just the words another needs to hear as they seek experiences of Jesus in their own lives.

Think of your story and call 203-416-1670 to sign up for a date and time. We will be recording stories (audio only) anytime at the Catholic Center (238 Jewett Ave, Bridgeport).

If you have any questions, please call 203-416-1670.


John Angotti is a Catholic musician, composer, and storyteller. We captured his story of Encounter when he visited the Catholic Center recently. We offer it here as an example of a great story of someone who has encountered the person of Jesus Christ. Your story may be very different, but perhaps John will inspire you with his words.
