I found the event enjoyable, thought-provoking and
informative. The mixture of places of worship and factual information was just right and provided an atmosphere in which a diverse group of people felt comfortable in participating fully.

Case Study
Our first DCIF event was held in February 2012. We organised a number of visits to places of worship in the city centre. These were places of worship of some of our forum members. The event included visits to the Al-Madinah Mosque on Talbot Street, The Dublin Buddhist Centre on James Joyce Street, Dublin Central Mission on Abbey Street, St. George and St. Thomas Church on Cathal Brugha Street and St. Mary’s Pro-Cathedral on Marlborough Street.
The visits created the opportunity for forum members to learn about one another’s faith in their own community environment. The event also contributed to building a deeper sense of friendship and connectedness among the members of the Forum.
People are now getting to know one another and are learning about each another through their conversations on daily life, personal spirituality, worship, practice and theology.
