The John Paul II Center for Interreligious Dialogue was established in 2010 as a partnership between the Angelicum and the Russell Berrie Foundation. The Center is designed to build bridges between Christians and other religious traditions. It aims to provide the next generation of religious leaders with a comprehensive understanding of interreligious dialogue in theology, life and pastoral practice.


The Center operates under the auspices of the Ecumenical Section in the Faculty of Theology, but serves as a resource for all faculty, students and guests of the University on interreligious issues and subjects. The Center provides support for the visiting faculty and students in its various programmes.
