Interfaith Week

Each spring semester, UH Interfaith Week gives students more opportunities to participate in various events from campus ministries from all kinds of faith traditions. The hope for this week is that students will be able to engage with a ministry of a different faith than their own in order to learn, grow, and possibly befriend new students along the way. Interfaith Week serves as a reminder to our UH community that our diversity and unity makes us stronger.

Interfaith Dialogue Dinner

Tuesday, February 22 | 5:00pm – 7:00pm
AD Bruce, 2nd Floor
Hosted by Houston Canterbury & A.D. Bruce Religion Center

Interfaith dialogue refers to cooperative, constructive, and positive interaction between people of different religious traditions (i.e. "faiths") and/or spiritual or humanistic beliefs, at both the individual and institutional levels. It is distinct from syncretism or alternative religion, in that dialogue often involves promoting understanding between different religions or beliefs to increase acceptance of others, rather than to synthesize new beliefs. The Interfaith Dialogue Dinner Series is an opportunity to understand and show respect for other religious/spiritual identities, thereby increasing our appreciation of their values. All are welcome to be a part of the engaging table discussion during a dinner service that will hopefully satisfy the mind, the body and the soul.
