About this Event

2020 SCARBORO MISSIONS LECTURE IN INTERRELIGIOUS DIALOGUE

Lecture—7:00 pm // Reception—8:30 pm

One of the most exciting developments in political theology is the renewed awareness that “the neighbour” creates a new space “in-between” the personal and the political. Professor Leddy will illustrate and explore how becoming neighbours summons new forms of spirituality and politics and provides common ground for interfaith and cross- cultural relationships.

Presented by

Dr. Mary Jo Leddy, Founder of Romero House and Regis College Professor

Respondents:

Shahid Akhtar and Dr. Barbara Landau

Co-Chairs, Canadian Association of Jews and Muslims

Moderator:

Dr. Michael Stoeber, Scarboro Missions Chair in Interreligious Dialogue, Regis College

The 8:30 pm reception following the Lecture will also include the reception for the Art Exhibit, “Neighbourhood Earth,” which is on display all of February 2020, at Regis College at the University of Toronto.

The programming offered by the “Msgr. John Mary Fraser Centre of Practical Theology” (or the “Scarboro Missions Chair of Inter-religious Dialogue”) was made possible through the Scarboro Missions Legacy. Scarboro Missions is a Society of Apostolic Life of Canadian Catholics, priests and laity, motivated by the Spirit and dedicated to the person, teaching, and mission of Jesus Christ as expressed in his words: "I have come that they may have life and have it to the full." (John 10:10). Through its Legacy, Scarboro Missions hopes to further its ministry by providing financial assistance to organizations with like-minded objectives.
