The much anticipated "Love & Responsibility" speaker/concert series kicks off on Tuesday, June 13, 2017 at 7:30 P.M. and will run through August 1, 2017. Set in the courtyard of Immaculate Conception Church near Union Square, young adults from all over city are invited to gather, pray, and connect with one another through a shared vision for responsible ways of relating intimately with one another. The series is based on the principles of Pope John Paul II's landmark book by the same name and examines the interconnectedness of the human person, human sexuality, and the role of marriage

The series, which has amassed a considerable following over the course of seven years, is sponsored by the Archdiocese of New York's Office of Young Adult Outreach, and will feature weekly speakers discussing specific topics concerning love and intimacy in the digital age.
