Are you Catholic, and would like to learn more about other religions?
Are you a person of faith and would like to know why Catholics might be interested in building a relationship with you on that basis?
Are you Catholic and have friends and family from other religions who would appreciate a message for their festivals (but you need a reminder like most of us)?

For more info on Catholic activities with people of different faiths, check their website.
“In dialogue [with other religions] we must not be surprised, but actually expect to find God already there, and that Christ has gone before us.” All Catholics are called to dialogue by their baptism, and continue Jesus’ work of love and healing when they follow this call. We believe that, in our times, interreligious engagement is essential.”
