The 2019 New York Encounter, with the theme of Something to Start From will take place February 15-17 at the Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 West 18th Street in Manhattan.
The Encounter is a three-day, FREE, cultural event organized by members of Communion and Liberation, consisting of panel discussions, artistic performances and
unique exhibits. This year's Encounter will feature a presentation on Pope Francis' vision for a new evangelization with Fr. Julian Carron, President of the Fraternity of Communion and Liberation, Austen Ivereigh, writer and journalist, and Cardinal Sean O'Malley, Archbishop of Boston. Another highlight: The Life of Servant of God, Chiara Corbella, presented by her husband Enrico. Chiara died at 28 of a rare cancer that was discovered while she was pregnant with her third child. She chose to give birth to Francesco, rejecting any treatment that could have saved her but endangered the life of her unborn son. These events and many others can be
