faith and community leaders broke their daily
fast before sharing a meal with Catholic Church
Several Imams and Muslim leaders arrived at
Archbishop’s House, on West Tce, as the sun set
on July 7, to break their day-long fast with dates
and water (known as the iftar meal) before prayer.
“It’s a chance for different faith communities
to join together in solidarity, reflecting on the
similarities of each other’s religions and working
together to create a multi-faith community of
support and mutual respect,” said Ministry and
Leadership director Teresa Lynch.
The dinner was initiated by Adelaide Archbishop
Philip Wilson three years ago and is celebrated

“We believe the food is more blessed if shared
with family and friends,” said Adelaide Mosque
Imam Ensar Cutahija, who has attended the
dinner at Archbishop’s house since it began. “It is

said: “It’s important to have faith communities
interacting with each other to break down

The third interfaith dinner in Adelaide coincides
with this year’s 50th anniversary of Vatican II’s
Nostra aetate – a declaration on the relation of
the Church with non-Christian religions.
