Upcoming Programs
Christianity and Islam
Peace!
Our 21st-century world is a great stage on which some powerful religious dramas are playing. One of those dramatic encounters is between Christianity and Islam. I think it’s safe to say that, given the events of 9-11, the war in Iraq, and the ongoing struggles in other parts of the Middle East, it’s helpful for Catholics to learn more about the faith of our Muslim brothers and sisters. Our upcoming programs will help your listeners learn more about Islam and meet some fascinating contemporary Catholics who live out their faith in our world.
Thanks for your interest in our program!  We are committed to providing faith formation with a Franciscan flavor.
