Report Cites Impact of Berrie Fellowship in Interreligious Studies

A new report has found that the John Paul II Center for Interreligious Dialogue and its flagship program, the Russell Berrie Fellowship in Interreligious Studies, have transformed not only the lives and perspectives of the 87 religious leaders who have participated in the program to date, but the breathtaking range of communities—in 33 countries—that those leaders returned to after completing the Fellowship. The report, below, was commissioned by The Russell Berrie Foundation to mark the John Paul II Center’s 10th anniversary. It found that 93% of alumni respondents now incorporate interfaith cooperation or dialogue into their daily conversations with students, peers, parishioners and superiors.
