The Australian Catholic Church’s Broken Bay Institute (BBI) will be running an e-conference from Sydney on the topic “Religion: Catalyst for violence or peace? Probing the Abrahamic traditions for answers” on Tuesday 23 June at 12 noon NZST.

If you’re in Wellington, you’re invited by the NZ Catholic Bishops Committee for Interfaith Relations to join a live-stream group session at Connolly Hall, Guildford Terrace, Thorndon at that time.

If you’re not in Wellington or can’t make it to Connolly Hall, you can register separately and join the e-conference on the BBI’s web site at: http://www.bbi.catholic.edu.au/econference-registration.

You can also download this handsome poster for more information and to share with your friends.

One way or the other, we hope to see you there!
