Dialogue as a path to understanding and peace

Part of the Franciscan insight is the realization that the depth of cosmic mystery can be expressed and sought via many religious currents. Francis' encounter with the sultan Malik el Kamil [1219] had an important influence on his own spiritual way and on the rule he set down for his friars and sisters.

Following the path of Francis, and faithful to our spirituality of encounter, we seek to gather others together for real encounters toward intercultural and interreligious dialogue.

Our house is a house of prayer and silence, but we want it to be a house of learning and discovery as well, a space for diverse expressions of a common hope.
