Catholic Muslim Dialogue

"...I definitely plan on attending every single dialogue...[nothing] can keep me away from these enriching discussions..."
- Onyekachi Nwoke, BenU Student

Catholic Muslim Dialogue hosted a Fishbowl conversation for the campus community

Created by Dr. Rita George-Tvrtkovic, Ph.D, Associate Professor of Theology, and hosted by Campus Ministry, Catholic Muslim Dialogue has flourished at Benedictine University for over five years. We strive to create a safe and hospitable space for students to share their beliefs and develop bridges of understanding with one another. Occurring bi-weekly over a shared meal, students have the opportunity to engage diverse perspectives on faith, culture, and society in student-led discussions. For more information about joining Catholic Muslim Dialogue, contact Kathryn Heidelberger.

Topics covered in the past include home schooling, interfaith marriages, Islamaphobia, vocation, and easily misunderstood customs. Though kept intentionally small to foster true conversation and community, once a semester Catholic Muslim Dialogue hosts a Fishbowl conversation that is open to the entire campus community.
