A Scholar of Islamic Studies will be one of the guest speakers at the fourth annual Mayor’s Interfaith Breakfast. The meeting brings together people from different religious backgrounds into one room. Mayor Bill Given explains that it was put in place 4 years ago to shed a light on the role people of faith, and faith communities play in building the city.
Dr. Ingrid Mattson is a Muslim religious leader and an expert on interfaith relations. She has participated as a member of the Interfaith Taskforce of the White House Office of Faith-based and Neighbourhood Partnerships.
In the past, Comissioner Christine MacMillan from the Salvation Army Church, Dr. Sean Campbell from Samaritan’s Purse and the Reverend Stan McKay from the United Church have been speakers at the event.
The breakfast takes place on Friday, May 12th at 7:30 a.m. at the Teresa Sargent Hall inside the Montrose Cultural Centre.
Tickets are available at the Revolution Place box office for $25.
