On Thursday, 25 November 2021, Prof. Jason Welle, O.F.M., Director of Studies at PISAI, gave a presentation online for a three-day webinar entitled, “Human Fraternity and Interreligious Dialogue: Seeing God in the Other”.
The event was organized by the Congregation of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (CICM Missionaries), principally by Fr. John Mallare, C.I.C.M., who completed his doctorate at PISAI in 2020. Dr. Genevieve Balance-Kupang moderated the webinar, which involved speakers from across the world, including religious leaders from other faiths speaking about their experiences of interreligious dialogue; most of the participants currently serve in the Philippines.
Welle was the keynote speaker for the final day, with a two-hour session entitled “Religion at the Service of Fraternity.” The session discussed the Magisterium of Pope Francis, especially the Document on Human Fraternity and the encyclical Fratelli Tutti, and included time for questions and answers.
