This four-day course held at Campion Hall, the Jesuit community in Oxford, aims to help Catholics understand how the worldviews of the Muslims they live and work with are shaped by their faith. Participants are encouraged to see the world through Muslim eyes and there are opportunities to learn about Islamic perspectives on Christianity, developments in the modern Islamic world and Islam in Britain.
The course is described as a safe space for Catholics to discuss their attitudes and judgements, and to consider how to respond to the call of their bishops and the Pope to dialogue with Islam.
It is presented by Dr Damian Howard SJ, who is currently a lecturer at Heythrop College with a special academic interest in the Christian theological response to Islam. It is supported by the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales.
There is a maximum of 11 participants and the deadline for applications is 16th December 2015. The cost of £370 covers all teaching, food and accommodation.
