2019 NY Encounter News

 

Once again this year, parishioners from St. Joseph Church attended the annual NY Encounter, - what is it ?

Organized by members of the Catholic lay movement of Communion and Liberation and by the Crossroads Cultural Center, NYE strives to witness to the new life and knowledge generated by the faith, following Pope Benedict's claim that "the intelligence of faith has to become the intelligence of reality."

In pursuit of this goal—and according to St. Paul’s suggestion to "test everything and retain what is good"—NYE aims to discover, affirm, and offer to everyone a truly human expression of the desire for truth, beauty, and justice. NYE thus becomes a meeting point for people of different beliefs, traditions, and cultures striving for reciprocal understanding, mutual building, and true friendship.

Through a vast array of conferences, artistic performances, and exhibits, NYE is both a dwelling place and a point of departure for men and women wishing to live fully while promoting a society of truth and love.

See you there next year !

"One of my favorite shows [ on EWTN], ... is the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, which I love, and when I've had a very stressful day, I'll come home -I've got it taped, and Kay and I will both listen, put it on and just sit back, relax, worship, and in that time of reflection, meditation, quietness I find myself renewed and restored."
- Rick Warren, Baptist / Evangelical pastor of Saddle-Back Church, author of "The Purpose-Driven Life" . Every Monday except Monday holidays or inclement weather)
