 Jewish Catholic Couples Dialogue Group

It is grace, and something to be celebrated, when love is found between people. Often that love can lead to marriage and the blessings of children. We are people of tradition and with the gift of a child we often return to our roots, through Rites of Initiation. Recently we were honored to officiate at the Baptism of a son, born of a Catholic Muslim family. If you would like additional information, please contact Eileen@theinterfaithunion.org

Muslims and Christians together make up well over half of the world’s population. Without peace and justice between these two religious communities, there can be no meaningful peace in the world. The future of the world depends on peace between Muslims and Christians so reads the introduction to “A Common Word” in 2007.  

Since the declaration of Nostra Aetate, promulgated by the Second Vatican Council in 1965, the Roman Church has promoted and supported interfaith dialogue between Christians and Muslims.  Of course, prior to both documents, those of us intermarried knew what it meant to 'love one another.' The Interfaith Union is thrilled to continue its series: conversations for and with couples who are Christian and Muslim and are dating or newly married. 

Our agenda is one of community, support, education and friendship as we explore those issues confronting couples today.  If you or anyone you know is interested in joining us, please contact Eileen O’Farrell Smith, Eileen@theinterfaithunion.org for more information.
