Our Lady of the Skies Chapel
congregants meet the Pope
The 17th International Seminar on “Catholic civil aviation chaplains and members of the airport chaplaincy at the service of integral human development” took place June 10-13, 2019 in
Rome, Italy. The Seminar was hosted by the Vatican and was attended by around 90 representatives of airport chaplaincies and religious and lay pastoral agents, representing 92 Catholic
airport chaplaincies of the world. The JFK Airport community was represented by Fr. Chris Piasta, Alice DiBenedetto and Dolores Hofman (Catholic Guild). Fr. Chris delivered a presentation
“The Church that Goes Forth” on behalf of North American airport chaplaincies. The highlight of the Seminar was a private audience with the Holy Father, when every participant had
an opportunity to speak to the Pope directly.
