Abraham Day

Fremantle 05 Sep 2018

Date: Wednesday 5 September
Time: 2.30pm
Venue: Drill Hall, Mouat Street, Fremantle

The University of Notre Dame Australia is pleased to be hosting an interfaith event celebrating the three religious traditions of Christianity, Judaism and Islam that share a common origin in Abraham. The theme for this year’s event is: “How do people of faith engage in a secular world?”. The event will coincide with the final day of the “Courage to Care” exhibition (an initiative of the Holocaust Institute of Western Australia) that seeks to inspire high school students to stand up for others in the face of injustice and persecution.

The formal proceedings, commencing at 2.30pm, will include introductory remarks on the chosen theme from leaders of each faith tradition, including the Most Reverend Timothy Costelloe SDB, Catholic Archbishop of Perth; Rabbi Daniel Lieberman, Chief Rabbi of Western Australia; and Sheikh Muhammad Agherdien, of the Islamic community in Perth. A panel discussion and audience Q&A will follow and the session will conclude with a reading and prayer from each faith tradition. Afternoon tea will be served following the formal proceedings.

We hope you will be able to join us for this significant occasion celebrating the origins and commonalities of these three religious traditions. Please RSVP below by Friday 31 August. For any enquiries please contact Ms Ana Ferreira Manhoso on 08 9433 0575 or fremantle.events@nd.edu.au
