Student leaders from Catholic high schools in the Archdiocese of New York attended the fourth annual “A Catholic Lens” event at the Sheen Center for Thought and Culture on March 12. The theme was “The Culture of Encounter,” and addressed topics such as faith over fear, especially in light of the coronavirus pandemic. His Eminence Timothy Cardinal Dolan started off the day by addressing students, and the event continued with keynote speaker Pete Burak, director of a Catholic outreach initiative that seeks to form young adults into international disciples of Christ, followed by a panel discussion, which also included two student panelists. The conference concluded with the Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and Benediction led by Father Joseph Espaillat. > Click here to view full article.
