Sunday, May 20, 2012
Commemoration and celebration of the 15th anniversary of the unique and timely “pact” of Chiara Lubich and W. D. Mohammed.
“Our Journey Towards the Excellence of the Human Family”
On May 18, 1997, history was made at the Historic Malcolm Shabazz Mosque in Harlem, NY.
On that day, two blessed leaders, Imam W. D. Mohammed (religious and spiritual leader of the largest constituency of Muslims in America), and Chiara Lubich (president and spiritual leader of the Focolare Movement worldwide), held a joint meeting at the Mosque to formalize a “pact” illustrating their commitment to work together to promote unity. This collaboration was not only between their own communities, but also with people of faith from all religions, based on common principles and values."
We will commemorate and celebrate the 15th anniversary of this unique and timely “pact” on Sunday, May 20, 2012. Please join us in unity and fellowship at the Historic Malcolm Shabazz Mosque, 102 West 116th Street, NY, NY 10026, from 1 pm to 4 pm. Admission is free. Lunch will be available (donation only $10.00) between noon and 1 pm. Please RSVP.
All are welcome to attend!

*Chiara Lubich (1920-2008) was the founder and spiritual leader of the Focolare, a worldwide ecclesial movement born in the Catholic Church and active in the US for over 50 years. With its spirituality based on unity, the Focolare fosters universal brotherhood and it includes members and friends of different religious and non-religious convictions, ages and backgrounds. During Chiara Lubich’s life four popes spoke striking words about her and her spiritual family. Chiara Lubich is the author of over 50 books in 21 languages and the recipient of 12 honorary doctorate degrees. Read more on the Focolare website: http://www.focolare.us
