In the course of the First National Encounter for Hispanic Youth and Young Adult Ministry, more than 40,000 Hispanic young people raised their prophetic voices to analyze their experiences, identify their needs and aspirations, and articulate their contributions to Pastoral Juvenil and to the mission of the Church. Through a process of consultation, pastoral-theological reflection, and prayer, they present in the Conclusions of this historic event a common vision for ministry to, with, and for young Hispanics, from their lived reality. Guided by their advisers and with the support of diocesan and regional structures, they identify the best practices and pastoral models, as well as priorities for the formation of the next generation of ecclesial leaders

In 1976, the bishops issued their seminal document A Vision of Youth Ministry, combining the best of Catholic traditions with emerging ideas from Church leaders across the nation. Two decades later, confronted by the challenges of an ever-changing world, the bishops enlarged that vision with the publication of Renewing the Vision. This volume provides all who minister to young people with an effective blueprint for building a truly meaningful ministry, centered on three important goals: to empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ; to draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the Church; and to foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person
