The Encounter

 

The Encounter Long Island is a once-a-month event for young people wishing to Encounter Christ. First, we encounter Jesus through an hour of Eucharistic Adoration with music and guided meditation, where we elevate our minds and hearts to our eternal Father in and with Christ present on the altar. During this time there is the opportunity to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation and rid ourselves of any sins or faults through the priest acting in persona Christi. Next, we encounter our Divine Brother through the Arts. Each month we provide a cultural experience with one or more persons sharing their life and spirituality via artistic presentations. We try to make each month uniquely distinct by inviting people from diverse backgrounds and different artistic gifts (including dance, music, art, acting, film,...). Finally, we encounter Christ through one another within small Communities, where we share our personal inspirations, fruitions, and experience with the help of the Holy Spirit. We end with a Reception, sharing food and fellowship. We cordially invite you to join us.
