Assumption to Host Renowned Religious Speaker

Monday, March 19, 2012

 

Eboo Patel

One of the world’s most decorated religious minds is coming to Worcester to spread his message of interfaith tolerance and leadership.

Eboo Patel, the founder of the Interfaith Youth Core, an organization looking to promote the ideals of interfaith leadership, will speak at Assumption College on April 2nd. The lecture will examine how leaders of different faiths have worked for the common good throughout history.

Entitled “Acts of Faith: Interfaith Leadership in a Time of Global Religious Crisis,” Eboo’s speech will delve into how a leader can define his followers' reality. From Martin Luther King, to Gandhi, to Abraham Joshua Heschel, Eboo asserts that interfaith leadership is how the world will get through its current religious crisis.

Assumption President Francesco Cesareo says he is thrilled to have a speaker of Eboo’s stature coming to campus, but also that his message is in line with what Assumption believes as a Catholic university.

“I am pleased and honored that Dr. Eboo Patel has accepted my invitation to speak at Assumption College,” Cesareo said. “Dr. Patel’s message regarding the importance of religious faith and cooperation among people of different faith traditions in addressing common concerns within contemporary society reflects Assumption College’s conviction that religion must be part of the dialogue that occurs within the public square.”

The lecture is scheduled to begin at 5 pm in Assumption’s Laska Gymnasium.
