    This annual event is made possible by the ongoing support of the Heritage Trust.

    Two experts in interreligious dialogue and the scholarship of their own religious traditions explore the timely issue of how religions co-exist and thrive in a modern, pluralistic society. Dr. Sachedina and Fr. Madigan will explore resources within Islam and Christianity, respectively, to address the faithful engagement of religious followers and leaders with other religions in the wider pursuit of contributing to civil society and the common good.
