The event is being held on Sunday, Sept. 22nd, 2019, with registration beginning at 2:30 pm. Thr actual program will be held from 3 PM until 6 PM at the St. Michaels Parish church, 14327 Highland Ave., in Orland Park.
There is no fee to attend, but a non-perishable food item to donate to “Respond Now” will be greatly appreciated by the organizers.
Chicago’s Southwest region is home to one of the largest populations of Palestinian Americans, Arab Americans who are Muslim and Christian. The Muslim community has several Mosques including the Prayer Center in Orland Park, and the Mosque Foundation in Bridgeview, while the Christian Arab community is dispersed throughout the region with several churches including St. George Church in Cicero, and St. Mary’s Church in Palos Heights.
Oftentimes, many Christian Arabs are disengaged from the interfaith dialogues.
