The New Zealand Catholic Bishops Committee for Interfaith Relations together with The Wellington Abrahamic Council of Jews Christians and Muslims warmly welcomes you to …
An Abrahamic Celebration of the Year of Mercy
The celebration will take place in two events:
A discussion on Mercy in our Sacred Scriptures
Wednesday 18 May, 6:30pm for a 7pm start
Pearce Room, St Joseph’s Church, Mt Victoria
Speakers: JoEllen Duckor (Jewish), Sister Elizabeth Julian (Christian) and Sultan Eusoff (Muslim)
There will be plenty of time for questions, reflections, and discussion after the speakers.
Entry by koha or donation of goods, eg flour, new winter socks, etc
After having heard the theoretical underpinnings, we have an opportunity to put this into practice at:
A Multi-Faith Service Day
Saturday 21 May, 9:30am – mid-afternoon (10am departure to outside jobs)
St Patrick’s Church Centre, 3 Childers Terrace, Kilbirnie
Lunch provided by the Wellington Islamic Centre
We’ll engage in activities such as baking some sweet treats for the Compassion Centre; preparing hygiene kits and toiletries for the Homeless Women’s Trust and Men’s Night Shelter; outside jobs – clean up and planting; possibility of visit to rest-homes.
You can help us publicise this event by downloading, printing, and distributing our poster.
