Lay Centre to host forum on 'Laudato Si'

ROME – The Lay Centre is delighted to host a forum April 27, entitled “Caring for our Common Home, Caring for Each Other,” featuring: Kerry Robinson, Global Ambassador, Leadership Roundtable and Bishop Paul Tighe, Adjunct Secretary, Pontifical Council for Culture

Using “Laudato Sì” as a point of departure, they will explore the relationship between our care for creation and for each other. They will be available for interviews. All media requests must be made in writing to The Lay Centre before April 24.

Some members of the Diplomatic Corps to the Holy See, as well as the participants from Cambridge Muslim College and The Center for Islamic Theology, Tübingen University, who are in Rome for an intensive study seminar organized by The Lay Centre, will be present.

The forum starts at 18.00 and will be followed by a reception at 19.15.

The Cambridge Muslim College study group consists of students in the Diploma in Contextual Islamic Studies and Leadership. They are graduates of Muslim seminaries in the U.K. and are as such young British Muslim religious leaders. They are attending the course at the Cambridge Muslim College where they are learning about science, art, history and inter-faith relations. As part of the academic programme, the college arranges seminars to help the students gain a better understanding of the issues concerned. It is with this mind that this visit to Rome has been organised. See their website for more information: about/

The Centre for Islamic Theology, Tübingen University, includes students who are doing a two-semester M.A. programme, entitled “Islamic Theology in a European Context.” Their professor, an alumna of The Lay Centre, is Prof. Dr. Lejla Demiri:

The Lay Centre considers this program to be a wonderful occasion to help create a culture of encounter and dialogue.

We would be delighted if you could join us on Thursday, April 27.
