Bishop Cepeda meets Pope Francis, says V Encuentro was 'moment of grace' for U.S. Church (VIDEO)

ROME — Auxiliary Bishop Arturo Cepeda met with Pope Francis on Sept. 18 along with a U.S. delegation of bishops and lay leaders to present the findings of last year's V Encuentro process in the United States.

The process, which gathered Hispanic Catholics from all walks of life and all corners of the country to participate in a synodal process of prayer, discernment and action, was a “moment of grace” for the U.S. Church, Bishop Cepeda said.

While in St. Peter's Square, Bishop Cepeda spoke with Rome Reports to talk about the visit, the Encuentro report, and what the process will mean for the Church in the years ahead.
