When Ron met Christ in the City in 2015, he was on the streets and doing his best to stay away from people. Now in housing and over four years later, he calls Christ in the City his family.
This video highlights Ron's journey and many others whose lives have been affected by the ministry of Christ in the City.
Pope Francis is calling for a culture of encounter, and that is exactly what we strive to live and inspire at Christ in the City. In Spanish, encuentro (encounter), is a real kind of connection with someone. Encuentro is something much more intimate and friendly, soul speaking to soul, a sort of sharing of humanity. It doesn't have to be long, but an encounter is when you're actually looking into someone's eyes and saying, 'I see you, and I'm actually listening to you."
