What is Encounter??

It is encountering our Lord in Eucharistic Adoration and through personal experiences, with music, fellowship and teams of prayer partners to pray over you.


“It is an Encounter with the Lord using all of your senses”



Encounter was started by St. Thecla’s own T.R.W Team or Team Reach Within. We are a small mix of people who were originally tasked with bringing the Called & Gifted program to the parishioners of St. Thecla. After we accomplished our goal we felt called to bring the ‘Encounter’ experience to members of the parish and the community. Encounter is the fruit of our team’s journey that started as a task and became a mission of love and mercy.







Jesus stays with us–day and night–in the Sacred Host that we may come to Him, spend time with Him and develop a relationship with Him. During this time Jesus showers us with grace, love and mercy. ~ Words of Rev. Jose Trevino








We welcome you to join us and experience the love and mercy of Jesus Christ.

Please pray for us as we continue on our journey of discipleship.
