Tapping an interfaith Dialogue at St. Mark's

Theology on Tap welcomes Aliya Hirji to break down stereotypes of Islam 

Aliya Hirji (right) talks to last month's Theology on Tap Speaker Pavle Vrljicak.
St. Mark's College will welcome Canadian Ismaili-Muslim Aliya Hirji to discuss women and Islam for the March 4 edition of Theology on Tap.

The event was organized by St. Mark's campus ministry.

Hirji's presentation, "Interfaith Dialogue and Education for Women in the Quran: A Canadian-Ismaili-Muslim Woman’s Perspective," will use the Quran, other writings, and personal anecdotes to break down cultural stereotypes. 

The event starts with a 6 p.m. Mass at St. Mark's Chapel followed by the presentation from 7 to 9 p.m.

St. Mark's College is located on the UBC campus at 5935 Iona Dr.
