Interfaith Understanding & Welcoming: University of Divinity

University of Divinity invites you to:

Nostra Aetate: Interfaith – Understanding & Welcoming

Date: Monday 5 September 2022      Time: 7:30pm to 8:45pm
Location: Online via Zoom

In the spirit of Nostra Aetate, Garratt Publishing – in conjunction with Yarra Theological Union – invite you to a 4-week webinar series exploring other religious traditions from a Catholic perspective.

As Australian Catholics, we increasingly engage others from differing faiths – in our everyday life, in our local communities, and especially in our Catholic schools.

‘Every Christian is called to go out to encounter others, to dialogue with those who do not think the way we do, with those who have another faith, or who don’t have faith. To encounter all because we all have in common our having been created in the image and likeness of God. We can go out to encounter everyone, without fear.’ –Pope Francis (Speech to Pontifical Council for Promoting the New Evangelisation, 14 October 2013)

‘Students can deepen their sense of Catholic identity through their encounter with different faith traditions.’ –Welcoming Each Other, Ecumenical and Interfaith Commission of the Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne

Catholic educators will find these sessions ideal as we increasingly welcome people from differing faiths into our school communities. Accreditation for Professional Development hours may be available on completion of the series.

These sessions will also appeal to all Catholics across Australia, offering important understandings to help interfaith engagement and enhance relationships with those of other faith traditions.

Over 4 weeks, we will explore God, Foundational Beliefs, Women, and Learning from Each Other.

As Catholics, it is incumbent on us to understand the religious traditions of our neighbours. This will provide a level of comfort as we engage with each other, and welcome each other.
