The theology department of the College of St. Elizabeth, Morristown, will host an interreligious conversation April 3 from 7 to 9 p.m. in Dolan Performance Hall.
Co-sponsored by the college’s Social Work Program, the evening program is themed “Divine Mercy in Times of Division,” and will feature dialogue between Rabbi Robert Scheinberg, Rabbi of United Synagogue, Hoboken; Rev. Carlye Hughes, Episcopal Bishop of the Diocese of Newark; Bishop Manuel Cruz, auxiliary Bishop of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Newark; and Aisha Linda Kaplan, Muslim chaplain resident in Morristown Medical Center. Panelist discussion will be facilitated by Father George Farrell, from the Catholic Community of St. Joseph, North Plainfield.
The panelists will explore how various understandings of divine mercy within the traditions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam can help inform how people address socially divisive issues such as healthcare access, immigration, and the refugee crisis. A question and answer session will follow the panel discussion, after which refreshments will be provided.
The event is free and open to the public. The College of St. Elizabeth is located at 2 Convent Road.
