The Muslim - Catholic Connection: Faith, Fear, and the Future of America
02/17/2014: 6:00PM - 7:30PM
Caruso Catholic Center
Contact: 213 740-1864
Join Rhodes scholar, award-winning author and interfaith leader, Eboo Patel, and Institute for Advanced Catholic Studies President, Father James Heft, S.M., to discuss faith, intolerance, and interfaith leadership. Reception at 6 pm, program at 6:30.
Despite being founded on the principles of religious freedom, America hasn't always been a hospitable environment for all communities of faith. The intolerance and suspicion experienced by many Catholics in the 19th century is comparable to the experience of American Muslims today. Can interfaith dialogue and service build meaningful bridges between communities and enliven one's faith?
