A four-day course for Catholics living and working with Muslims is taking place this September.
“Understanding Islam”, presented by Father Damian Howard SJ, aims to help Catholics understand how the worldviews of the Muslims they come into contact 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 takes place at the Focolare Centre for Unity in Welwyn Garden City and is supported by the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales.
You can hear Father Howard talk about the course at catholicnews.org.uk/exploring-islam-podcasts.
