This four-day course is held at the Focolare Centre for Unity in Welwyn Garden City, and aims to help Catholics understand how the worldviews of the Muslims they live and work with are shaped by their faith.
The course is presented by Dr Damian Howard SJ, who is currently a lecturer at Heythrop College with a special academic interest in the Christian theological response to Islam. It is supported by the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales and Georgetown University.
The course is a safe space for Catholics to discuss their attitudes and judgements, and to consider how to respond to the call of their bishops and their Pope to dialogue with Islam. A maximum of 11 participants ensures that there is plenty of opportunity for discussion.
