Muslim-Catholic Women’s Dialogue
Established in 1996, the Muslim-Catholic Women’s Dialogue began as an informal relationship between a small group of Muslim and Catholic Women. The dialogue was and continues to be sponsored by the Office of Ecumenical and Interfaith Concerns of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee and the Milwaukee Muslim Women’s Coalition. From its modest beginnings, the dialogue expanded and began to offer larger opportunities for dialogue within congregations as well as annual programs focusing on Catholic and Muslim perspectives on topics such as Jesus, Mary, the Prophets, Scripture, and Social Justice among others. Programs of the Dialogue are open to women and men of all faiths. Most recently the Dialogue hosted “A Catholic Priest among Muslims: What I Have Learned” with Fr. Thomas Michel, S.J.
Sponsored by the Islamic Society of Milwaukee and the Archdiocese of Milwaukee this dialogue brings together a small group of Muslims and Catholics on a regular basis to explore topics of common concern.
