Westminster Interfaith: Promoting Dialogue Between People of Faith The agency of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Westminster for Interreligious Dialogue

Our Aims

  • To respond to the teaching of the Second Vatican Council and the Popes with regard to interfaith dialogue.
  • To promote greater understanding, co-operation and respect between Christians and people of other faiths and thus combat discrimination at all levels.
  • To help Christians deepen their own faith by promoting greater awareness of other faiths through dialogue, prayer and action.

What is Westminster Interfaith?

It is the agency of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Westminster engaged in the field of dialogue with people of other faiths. On our history page About WIF you can find out about the succession of directors who have worked in promoting awareness and understanding at the levels of both daily life and academic enquiry over the past three decades, and The Team page brings this record up to date.

For many people Westminster Interfaith is known principally for organising the annual Multifaith Pilgrimage for Peace. We have reports of the most recent of these, at Pilgrimage 2008 and Pilgrimage 2009.

On the Events page you will also find information we have received about forthcoming events.
