Vatican plans outreach to non-believers, starting in France
CWN - January 27, 2011
Vatican plans for a "Courtyard of the Gentiles," to promote dialogue with non-believers, will take shape in March with a series of events in France.
Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, the president of the Pontifical Council for Culture, has announced plans for 3 colloquia on "religion, enlightenment, and common reason," to be held on March 24-25. The discussions will take place in Paris at UNESCO headquarters, the Sorbonne, and the Institut de France.
The events will close with an evening festival in the courtyard outside the cathedral of Notre Dame, with music, art displays, and a light show.
