Queen’s University Faculty of Education hosts multi-faith panel.
The horrific shooting at the mosque in Montreal earlier this year touched many people around the world, including Queen’s University professor Ted Christou (Education).
“The day of the shootings, the event made me think about people practicing their own religion and what an incident like that means to society,” Dr. Christou says. “I wanted to do something impactful, something that made it okay to talk about religion without any fear.”
With a heavy heart, Dr. Christou decided to organize a panel discussion featuring a variety of faiths. In the wake of the tragedy, Dr. Christou approached University Chaplain Kate Johnson about putting together a multi-faith panel and hosting a discussion on religion. The event is being hosted by Dean Rebecca Luce-Kapler and the Faculty of Education.
