The Brian and Jean Hickey Center for Interfaith Studies and Dialogue sponsors a quarterly gathering to discuss a significant book or article dealing with world religions. An initial review of the reading material and tentative questions for the discussion are posted on this site prior to the gathering. Readers are asked to critique and suggest additional questions for the discussion. Those who participate in our common list serve have the opportunity to continue the discussion after the gathering.
If you wish to attend our quarterly session or to learn more, please contact the Hickey Center at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (585) 389-2963.
