SEDOS seminar on interreligious dialogue with Muslims.

SEDOS (Servizio di Documentazione e di Studi--Rome) is a forum open to Institutes of Consecrated Life, which commit themselves to deepening their understanding of global mission. The organization encourages research and disseminates information through various means, including the yearly seminar. The 2003 Seminar of SEDOS, cosponsored by the Union of Superiors General, will take as its motto: "Call to a new vision of others and of ourselves through interreligious dialogue: focused on Islam." Among religious institutes and ecclesial movements there is a strong desire to grow in dialogue with other religions and spiritualities in order to deepen one's understanding of other faith traditions and, indeed, of one's own. Hence, the concrete practice of dialogue between Christians and Muslims will run as a thread through the program of the seminar, to be held in Rome, May 19-23,2003.

Participants will listen to experiences from representatives of Muslim and Christian communities and encounter one another in faith through dialogue and sharing of life. Particular attention will be given to the initiatives taken by religious congregations and ecclesial movements. A Muslim and a Christian woman will be invited to reflect and dialogue from a woman's perspective on the challenges of faith in our modern world. The seminar will also examine how Catholic Church leadership and that of Islam practice interreligious dialogue on a global level. The program will offer theological reflections on religious pluralism and on Muslim and Christian spirituality of dialogue. The 2003 SEDOS seminar aims to be a life-giving interreligious encounter, offering prospects and hopes for dialogue to all participants. For more information, seethe SEDOS website, <>.
