Local interfaith group decries New Zealand mosque shooting

The South-West Interfaith Team of Greater Chicago (SWIFT) issued a statement Friday in response to the shootings that killed 50 people at two mosques in New Zealand.

The suspected shooter reportedly issued an Islamophobic manifesto prior to the attack.

SWIFT is an interfaith 18- member organization of Christian, Muslim and Jewish congregations, including four in the Homewood-Flossmoor area.

Interfaith group examines the question of angels during Homewood session

The question, “Do you believe in angels?” brought nearly 100 people together March 19 at St. Andrew United Methodist Church in Homewood.
 
The Sunday afternoon program was sponsored by South West Interfaith Team, a non-profit organization made up of 14 congregations from Christian churches, Jewish synagogues and Muslim mosques working to promote dialogue among different religious communities and collaborating on community projects.
