St Augustine’s Priory Multi-Faith Eid Breakfast

Posted: 28th June 2017

‘It is the duty of everyone to defend religious freedom and promote it for all people’, Pope Francis.

It is an important part of the mission of Catholic schools to engage in dialogue and work together with people of other faiths in our school and local community. After recent events we, as a faith community, want to show that members of different faiths can join together in times of celebration.

Earlier this month our Cardinal, Vincent Nichols, was joined by London Mayor Sadiq Khan and Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis at an interfaith ‘iftar’ (this is the meal eaten by Muslims after sunset during Ramadan) at Archbishop’s House. During that event Cardinal Nichols emphasised, “in these times it’s more important than ever to bring together our different communities and work to bring peace and prosperity.”

Before school on Wednesday morning, girls and staff joined together in celebration in the Nuns’ Refectory to enjoy a Multi-Faith Eid breakfast organised by Head of Religious Studies, Mrs McDermott.  Eid Mubarak!
