Faith & Immigration – Public Lecture
What role do our faith communities play in the integration of new Canadians? What is the attitude of new Canadians to the role of faith in the public square? In a province which has seen discussions of accommodation and religious symbols dominate the airwaves and political debate these questions seem more pertinent than ever. Join us on October 25th when Ray Pennings, Executive Vice-President and Co-Founder of Cardus, a non-partisan, faith-based Canadian think tank, will speak to the issues of immigration, religious diversity, and public policy at a free, public lecture sponsored by the ESCC. Mr. Pennings will be drawing on data compiled from a public opinion survey which was implemented by Angus Reid & Cardus. You can read more about this survey on the Angus Reid website. Mr. Pennings will speak on Thursday, October 25 from 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. at St. Kevin’s Parish (5600 Côte-des-Neiges Road, Montreal H3T 1Z1).
