The Sheen Center for Thought & Culture is proud to co-sponsor the 2021 New York Encounter, an annual three-day cultural event coming to you live this year from the heart of New York City, offering opportunities for education, dialogue, and friendship. This year’s theme is “When Reality Hits” and events will focus on topics that are breaking through the moral boundaries of our hearts and minds today.
All New York Encounter 2021 events are live-streamed free. All are invited. There will be simultaneous Spanish interpretation provided during all 2021 events.
Here are the events for February 12:
The Encounter 2021 opens with introductory remarks by Archbishop Pierbattista Pizzaballa, Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem, and music played by Molly Morkoski, pianist, moderated by an NYE MC.
Presentation of the newly published collection of Lorenzo Albacete’s writings, The Relevance of the Stars, with Stephen Sanchez, President of the Albacete Forum, and Lisa Lickona and Gregory Wolfe, editors of the “The relevance of the Stars”.
Be sure to sign up for the amazing exhibits available this year at the New York Encounter, The Faith of Fr. Giussani, a documentary on the founder of Communion and Liberation which collects video-clips from several of his talks, and The Albacete Show, a video journey through the life and legacy of the amazing Lorenzo Albacete—priest, theologian, and former rocket scientist.
