Healing Our Divided Faith Today: The Community at the Crossing

Wednesday, July 13, 2022
3 PM - 4 PM

On Wednesday, July 13, join The Very Reverend Patrick Malloy, Acting Dean of the Cathedral, and the Episcopal Parish Network for an online discussion of the Cathedral's newest program, the Community at the Crossing. This online workshop will share how the community will be formed and what its role on the Cathedral Close and in the City of New York will entail. Panelists will include:

Patrick Malloy, Ph.D. - Acting Dean; Cathedral of Saint John the Divine; New York, New York
Hannah Spiers - Community at the Crossing Residential Director; Chemin Neuf; Saint-Pierre-de-Curtille, France
Ignacio Fantaguzzi - Alumnus; Community of Saint Anselm (CoSA); Houston, Texas
Monica Butta - Vice President of Development; Cathedral of Saint John the Divine; New York, New York

The Community at the Crossing will reignite international ecumenical dialogue and prepare young people around the world to lead with an ethical perspective and a shared commitment to creating a more just world.

At a time of great societal divisions and a crisis of connection, the Cathedral is uniquely positioned to create an extraordinary “intentional community” in New York City, reigniting ecumenical dialogue and preparing the ethically minded leaders of tomorrow. Since its founding more than 125 years ago, the Cathedral has stood with all members of our greater community—regardless of race, creed or ideology—feeding, clothing, teaching, and inspiring those who are adrift because of disease, poverty, violence, and spiritual bereavement.

The Community at the Crossing builds upon the model of intentional contemplative communities worldwide. Drawing inspiration from the Community of St. Anselm under the leadership of the Honorable Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, and the Catholic, ecumenical Chemin Neuf Community, the Community at the Crossing will bring together 10 – 15 diverse, promising young leaders to live at the Cathedral together in prayer, formation, and service.
