The Badaliya was founded in 1934 in Cairo, Egypt by Louis Massignon to encourage interfaith dialogue between Muslims and Christians. The Badaliya USA was recreated in 2002 in response to the tragic events of 9/11. The Peace Islands Institute joined with St. Pauls in 2006 in establishing an Inter faith sharing group at St. Paul’s Parish to encourage interfaith and intercultural relations between Christians and Muslims. By “crossing over” to the ‘other’ and sharing our faith experiences, we enhance our understanding  of our own faith while also learning about our neighbor’s faith traditions.
