Islam 101 – November 5, 2007

Islam 101 continues its march around the diocese -- this week at St. Joseph's in Cupertino (10110 N. De Anza Blvd. 95014 near Stevens Creek Blvd). Everyone is invited.

Fr. Jose Rubio is giving his presentation on Monday, November 5 at 7:00 p.m. Get your questions about Islam answered in our Q & A -- from better sources than network TV!

Christian charity, and our own comfort, demands a better understanding of our neighbors and this knowledge leads to less anxiety and the opening of hearts & minds. Islam 101 is a top-level brief introduction to Islam. This includes its place among the major religions of the world, the 5 Pillars and 5 basic beliefs. Also, the Islamic view on the major scriptures and other prophets is provided. Some graphics --pictures and calligraphy -- are shown. Further depth of the presentation depends upon the interest of the audience during the question & answer session. The intent is to provide a basic understanding of Islam and to encourage Catholics to seek further information and involvement. Fr. Jose Rubio and/or Don Jones will be available for follow-up interests.

Contact Don at (408) 934-7114 (message line) or email for questions.
