|In the spirit of Nostra Aetate, Garratt Publishing – in conjunction with Yarra Theological Union – invites you to a new four-session webinar series exploring other religious traditions from a Catholic perspective.|
Continuing on from the 2022 Nostra Aetate webinars that introduced the religious traditions of Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, and Islam, this new series engages with a leader from each of these faiths. The webinars will take the form of a ‘conversation’, and will be hosted by a Catholic scholar well versed in inter-religious dialogue.
These sessions are ideal for all Catholics across Australia – in particular, Catholic educators – as we increasingly welcome people from differing faiths into our school communities.
