Reader Robert alerts us to a meeting coming up this week in Milwaukee, WI between the US Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). If you are in the Milwaukee area you might want to drop in.
The Midwest Dialogue of Catholics and Muslims will present the lecture “Faithful Citizenship: Catholic & Muslim Engagement in Civic Life” at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 25 at the Islamic Society School, 815 W. Layton Ave.
The presentation features Marquette University Theology Professor Irfan Omar, who specializes in Islamic thought, and Michael Hovey, assistant adviser for ecumenical and interfaith affairs for the Archdiocese of Detroit.
The Midwest Dialogue is a program of the Islamic Society of North America and the United Sates Conference of Catholic Bishops. To register, call (414) 769-3452.
This is an on-going series of meetings. Here is some information from an earlier meeting in 2007.
