BeingFaithful

Marriage between Muslims and Catholics in particular and Christians more broadly is becoming increasingly common. The issues raised are complex and little appreciated. Marriage has quite different meaning for Catholics and Muslims. Both religions have their own religious law governing marriage. There is also usually a cultural gap which needs to be bridged if any relationship is to work. Bringing together the expertise of theologians, canon lawyers, providers of marriage preparation and pastors, Being Faithful, a study day at Heythrop College on Wednesday, November 19th, seeks to examine and deepen reflection on the issues with a view to improving the preparation offered to couples in which each wants to be faithful to their religious tradition whilst at the same time respecting the religious identity of their partner.

In association with: Marriage Care, the Heythrop Centre for Christianity and Interreligious Dialogue, Christian-Muslim Forum.
