The Sultan and the Saint


This year marks the 800th anniversary of the meeting between the Sultan Malik al Kamil and St. Francis of Assisi. Their encounter continues to bring hope that peaceful dialogue, mutual respect, and genuine fraternity are possible.

On Friday, September 27th, beginning at 7PM the film will be shown at the Rainbow Turkish House of El Paso (1030 Zaragoza Rd., Ste. V, El Paso TX). This event is cosponsored by Pax Christi of El Paso, El Paso Interfaith Alliance, National OFS Ecumenical/Interfaith Committee, and the Province of Our Lady of Consolation JPIC (Justice, Peace, and the Integrity of Creation) Commission.

On Monday, September 30th, beginning at 7PM the film will be shown at the Mount St. Francis Center for Spirituality (101 St. Anthony Dr., Mt. St. Francis IN) as part of a week long celebration of St. Francis of Assisi.


Both showings will be followed by an opportunity for discussion. Please pass along the information and join us for an evening of peace and reconciliation.
