Encuentro Latino draws more than 5,000 pilgrims every year from various countries around the world to celebrate Latin heritage, honor the Blessed Mother, worship the Lord, and encounter His abundant mercy.

In his homily before a packed church, Bishop Walker emphasized the rarity of presiding at an Ordination in a priest's home parish.
