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.
