ENCOUNTER New Jersey: Redemptive Suffering

Join young adults (18-39) from around the Archdiocese of Newark on April 28th for Encounter New Jersey!


The Bible is full of stories of people whose lives were changed by their Encounter with Jesus. From those whose names we know, like the Apostles Peter or Paul, to the nameless ones like the woman at the well or the crippled man on the mat. One thing is certain, an Encounter with Jesus is life changing. 

ENCOUNTER is a life-changing monthly event for young adults in the Archdiocese of Newark designed to bring young people into the presence of Jesus. Encounter features dynamic praise and worship, Eucharistic Adoration, a powerful witness, opportunities for Confession, and authentic fellowship.

SAVE THE DATE! Saturday, April 28th at Sacred Heart Hall (Archdiocesan Youth Retreat Center) in Kearny, NJ. The night begins at 7 PM. Confessions will be available throughout the night. An afterparty will follow at a local bar/restaurant.

Our guest speaker will be speaking to us about Redemptive Suffering. Our house band will be leading praise & worship throughout the night.
