A Year of Mercy: The Abrahamic Faiths in the Year of Jubilee

29 September 2016
Loyola University Chicago, JDS Smith (Sister Jean) North Room, Damen Student Center, Lake Shore Campus
3:30 PM-5:30 PM

Event is free and open to the public.

The Joan and Bill Hank Center for Catholic Intellectual Heritage is proud to host the Catholicism in Dialogue series this fall for the forth consecutive year. By engaging the themes of mercy, forgiveness, and solidarity found in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, our distinguished panel of faculty and students will discuss and reflect upon the Abrahamic faiths and their relation to this "Extraordinary Jubilee" year, responding to Pope Francis' call to action. Our panel will include Dr. Devorah Schoenfeld (Professor of Jewish Studies), Dr. Michael Murphy (Director of Catholic Studies), and Mr. Omer Mozaffar (Lecturer and Muslim Chaplain). In addition, we will be hearing from a variety of student voices in order to further understand the ways that acts of mercy contribute to stronger communities, trust, and understanding.
