Inter-Religious Sharing

As part of our commitment to dialogue, good will and a mutual understanding, members of Glenmary Home Missioners visited the Islamic Center of Great Cincinnati which is located near our National Headquarters. The day included a talk and tour by Shabana Ahmed and a meeting with Imam Hossam Musa. It was a profound experience which helped us to learn more about the beliefs of Islam and some of their practices and traditions. In addition it allowed us to reflect on the many similarities between our faith traditions, to recognize some of the inter-connectedness and to see the need for continued efforts to build bridges between our communities. 
"We cannot truly call on God, the Father of all, if we refuse to treat in a brotherly way any man, created as he is in the image of God" (Nostra Aetate 5).

New to the Glenmary Website

A couple new articles on  discerning your call have been added to the Glenmary website.

Discerning Begins with Knowing Thyself 
Discerning with Glenmary means getting to know God, the community and yourself better. Writing your own story can help clarify your call and affirm your vocation.

Saints, Holiness, and Discernment
By Mr. Wilmar Zabala, Vocation Counselor
November began with All Saints Day. The saints we personally love can help us embrace our human limitations and lead us to holiness of life.
