Learning About Other Traditions

interfaith symbolsIn Commemoration of The 50th Anniversary of Vatican II’s Nostra Aetate (The Church and Other Religions), Santa Teresa Parish presents a five part series about non-­Christian traditions. Promoting mutual respect and understanding to create a more peaceful world characterized by tolerance and good will. Featured speakers come from Muslim, Hindu, Zen Buddhist, Jain, and Jewish traditions. All are welcome! The series begins on Wednesday, November 18, 2015, 7:00 – 8:30 pm at Santa Teresa Parish, 794 Calero Ave, SJ 95123. See the Events Calendar for additional sessions.

“The Catholic Church rejects nothing that is true and holy in these religions. She regards with sincere reverence those ways of conduct and of life, those precepts and teachings which, though differing in many aspects from the ones she holds and sets forth, nonetheless often reflect a ray of that Truth which enlightens all men.” Nostra Aetate, Vatican II
