On November 19th, St. Procopius Abbey was pleased to host the 28th Annual DuPage Inter-Faith Thanksgiving Service.
Following the Papal Assisi Model of praying in each other’s presence, the annual event gathers the Benedictine monks of the Abbey, Buddhist Zen, Hindu, Sikhs, Muslims, Jews, Zoroastrians, Theosophists, Bahai, and Protestants. The Abbey Schola also sang several pieces of Gregorian chant.
Monastic Interreligious Dialogue was initiated by Pope Paul VI, and endorsed by Pope John Paul II, Pope Benedict XVI, and Pope Francis.
