The New Mexico Interfaith Dialogue is dedicated to facilitating respectful understanding of faith traditions through dialogue. We currently focus our conversations on the three Abrahamic faiths: Judaism, Christianity and Islam.
The New Mexico Interfaith Dialogue began in 1982 as an interpersonal dialogue between Albuquerque-area priest, Father Ernest Falardo, and Rabbi Paul Citrin of Congregation Albert, in response to the Vatican II document Nostra Aetate.
We hold monthly Dialogue meetings at houses of worship throughout Albuquerque, usually on the third Thursday afternoon/evening of each month. Check our blog or calendar for details about upcoming NM Interfaith Dialogue meetings and other interfaith events of interest.
We also hold an annual Spring Colloquium to explore specific issues in-depth, comparing the similarities and differences among Jews, Christians and Muslims. We also welcome other faith traditions into the dialogue to further create interfaith understanding.
