Interfaith initiatives

Saint Martin's University is a community that welcomes students, faculty and staff of all faiths and no faith.

In October 2013, the university hosted Eboo Patel, Ph.D., founder and president of the Interfaith Youth Core and author of Acts of Faith and Sacred Ground. Dr. Patel gave a key note address focusing on the creation of a youth movement that seeks to view faith as a bridge of cooperation rather than a barrier of division. In light of events such as the Boston Marathon bombings, it is increasingly crucial to inspire the desire in young people to lead their communities in interfaith cooperation. It is our hope that Dr. Patel's visit will be a major step toward building stronger interfaith dialogue and partnerships in the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Interfaith cooperation and peace making are essential components of the Catholic faith.

Saint Martin's University is currently exploring approaches to bring the Interfaith Youth Core to our campus in concrete and dynamic ways.
