For 20 years, the Hubbard Interfaith Sanctuary has stood as a center devoted to peace, learning and interfaith dialogue and understanding for our students, employees and the entire Capital Region.

March 31, 2017 — The Sidney and Beatrice Albert Interfaith Lectureship at The College of Saint Rose presents “Vatican II: Nostra Aetate – Then and Now,” a roundtable conversation with Dr. Judith Banki of the Tanenbaum Center for Interreligious Understanding and the Rev. James Kane of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany.  The Rev. Christopher DeGiovine will moderate the discussion.

The program will take place Monday, April 3, at 7 p.m. in the Hubbard Interfaith Sanctuary, 959 Madison Ave., Albany, New York. A special re-dedication ceremony in celebration of the Sanctuary’s 20th anniversary will begin the evening.

The program is free and open to the public.

As senior adviser of interreligious affairs for the Tanenbaum Center, Banki is one of the pioneers of organized interreligious dialogue.  She is an award-winning author, has received many honors for her work promoting Jewish-Christian understanding, and was a participant in Vatican II, along with Rabbi Marc Tanenbaum.

Kane serves as director and ecumenical officer of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany.  He has served as pastor of churches throughout the diocese for more than 40 years.

After 25 years at Saint Rose as dean of spiritual life, DeGiovine currently serves as pastor of St. Matthew’s Church in Voorheesville.
