Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue

Public Consultation

“Every Christian is called to go out to encounter others, to dialogue with those who
do not think the way we do, with those who have another faith, or who don’t have
faith. To encounter all because we all have in common our having been created in
the image and likeness of God. We can go out to encounter everyone, without fear.”  Pope Francis

Join guests from Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Sikh and Buddhist communities

Date: Sunday 23 September 2018
Time: 2:30pm – 5:00pm
Venue: Catholic Leadership Centre, 576 Victoria Parade, East Melbourne VIC


Australia has been largely successful in developing a multi-faith and multi-cultural society. For that reason, four members of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue (PCID) will be coming from the Vatican to Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne in order to be better informed about the interreligious activities of the Catholic church in Australia; to be familiar with the interreligious particularities in Australia; and to encourage those involved in this service.

The four members of the Delegation are 

  • H.E. Bishop Miguel Ángel Ayuso Guixot MCCJ, Secretary of PCID. Born in Spain. The head of the delegation, is also an expert in Islam.
  • Monsgr. Indunil Kodithuwakku. Born in Sri Lanka. Follows the relations with the Buddhists, Shinto and Confucianists.
  • Monsgr. Santiago Michael. Born in India. Follows the relations with the Hindus, Sikhs and Jains.
  • Fr. Markus Solo SVD. Born in Indonesia. Follows the relations with Muslims in Asia and Pacific

They will be accompanied by the Most Reverend Christopher Prowse, Archbishop of Canberra-Goulburn, who is chair of the Australian Bishops’ Commission for Ecumenism and Inter-religious Relations.
