We live in a religiously dynamic time. Religious diversity is increasing within the U.S., and that very diversity is creating tensions and puzzlement within local communities and the national body politic. In such a time it’s imperative that religious people and communities across faith traditions understand one another and seek avenues for cooperation. The Collegeville Institute encourages the virtue and art of listening in order to open doors of religious understanding.
Our groundbreaking Multi-Religious Fellows program brings together 10-14 Buddhist, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, and Christian religious leaders to learn how their distinct religious traditions can both inform one another and contribute to a common public good.
Build bridges between emerging faith leaders from different religious traditions.
As with other Collegeville Institute Fellows programs, the Multi-Religious Fellows meet with leaders from a variety of civic and commercial institutions—government, business, education, health care, criminal justice—to help them better understand these complex sectors of the society in which their religious communities are embedded. This program combines immediate multi-religious encounter with preparation for action in the public arena.
In our comprehensive campaign, we seek to raise $250,000 to fund a second cohort of the Multi-Religious Fellows program.
