“These sessions provide a bridge between the two religious traditions in which each can learn about the other’s basic religious ideas and practices. Our vision involves starting a dialogue between the two religions, that moves into the future where we both grow in respect and knowledge of each other, so that both communities can engage with each other effectively in ways that promote peace and relationship in the City of Good Neighbors.” -Deacon Ted Pijacki, Permanent Deacon of the Roman Catholic Church.
“We believe in developing new bonds, strengthening interfaith relationship and spread the awareness about religious and cultural values through social exchange and Know Thy Neighbor will serve as a an interfaith networking channel to promote understanding and exploration of different religious traditions, which will further fortify the bond between the two faith communities and strengthen the diverse neighborhood of WNY.” Prof. Faizan Haq, Founding President, WNYMuslims.
