SINGAPORE – The Archdiocesan Council for Inter-Religious and Ecumenical Dialogue (IRED) is organizing a series of talks themed "Love of God, Love of Neighbour".

In light of Nostra Aetate and in tandem with Pope Benedict’s meeting with Muslim scholars in November, IRED hopes to further sensitize and deepen understanding of other major religions in Singapore among Catholics, to generate more interest among Catholics to inter-religious dialogue and to further collaboration among people of different faiths.

All talks will be held on
Tuesdays at 8.00pm at these churches:

– "Love of my Buddhist Neighour" by La Salle Brother Michael Broughton on Jul 1 at Sts. Peter and Paul

– "Love of my Jewish neighbour" by Infant Jesus Sister Maria Lau on Jul 8 at Blessed Sacrament

– "Love of my Hindu neighbour" by Father Bruno Saint Girons on Jul 15 at Risen Christ

– "Love of my Muslim neighbour" by Sister Theresa Seow on Jul 22 at Our Lady of Perpetual Succour– "Love of my Taoist neighbour" by Father Henry Siew on Jul 29 at Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Each talk will trace the history of each faith in relation to Christianity, examine each faith’s understanding of, and relationship with, God and consider the relationship between the faiths and how there can be unity in diversity.
