Interreligious Dialogue

Understanding Islam: A course for Catholics living and working with Muslims

28/05/2019 11:40 am

Muslim cemetery in Kyrgyzstan by Simon Garbutt

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.

Participants are encouraged to see the world through Muslim eyes, and are taken through a stimulating programme including sessions on Muhammad, Islamic beliefs, laws and prayer life.

There are also opportunities to learn about Islamic perspectives on Christianity, developments in the modern Islamic world, and Islam in Britain. 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.

The course is presented by Dr Damian Howard SJ, Provincial Superior of the Jesuit British Province. He has a special academic interest in the Christian theological response to Islam. You can hear him talk about the course on our Exploring Islam Podcasts. The course is supported by the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales.
