At 4pm on Sunday, September 19 we will open and close a talk & discussion by guest speaker Mary Ann Pevas who has lived and worked in Iran, Pakistan, Egypt, and other parts of the Middle East. Mary Ann Pevas, O.P., a Dominican Sister, and consultant to Middle Eastern bankers, is currently working to dispel the myths about Islam which cause fear and hatred, and to build bridges of understanding between the United States and the Middle East. This invitation came from Barb Weller (in the tenor section). View poster.
