CAIR-FL: Catholics Will Share Mass With Muslims

CAIR-FL: CATHOLICS WILL SHARE MASS WITH MUSLIMS Miami Herald, 11/24/05 http://www.miami.com/mld/miamiherald/13239685.htm

GMuslims and Catholics will share Thanksgiving Day Mass at 10 a.m. todayat St. Katharine Drexel Catholic Church, 2700 Glades Cir., Weston.

This is the second year that Muslims have been invited to the service. Last year’s Mass drew 400 to 500 people, the Rev. Paul Edwards said.

An invitation was extended to the Muslim community following an opinion piece that Edwards wrote regarding attacks on Catholic churches in Iraq.
After the piece’s publication, Edwards was contacted by a representative from a local Islamic group.

”We spoke and I invited them to Thanksgiving Day Mass so we can establish connections with other,” Edwards said.

The Mass will be a traditional Catholic service, with a greeting from Altaf Ali, director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, South Florida Office, Edwards said. For information, call 954-389-5003.
