New York Encounter

Organized by members of the Catholic movement 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 truly human expressions of 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 and promote a society of truth and love.

2017 New York Encounter:
