At a recent meeting of the Cork Three Faiths Forum the Rev. Tony Murphy stepped down as their chair, having completed two years in the role. Clair Lalor and Fahmeda Naheed were elected as new co-Chairs.
The Cork Three Faiths Forum Group was established in 2016 with the objective to bring together representatives of the three Abrahamic faiths – Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The Forum seeks to create a space where people of faith can dialogue openly and respectfully, come to a better understanding of each other’s faith and work together to enhance tolerance, cooperation and friendship in society.
In 2023 the events organised by the Cork Three Faiths Forum included a Spiritual Reasoning Seminar on Interfaith Perspectives on Creativity, a celebration of Earth Day involving Cork’s Social and Health Education Project (SHEP), and an Interfaith Art Exhibition Connecting Through Art as part of Cork Culture Night.
