New book launched - Faith in Pluralistic Malta

The book ‘Faith in Pluralistic Malta’ is now available!

The Chaplaincy Council felt the need to create a space within the Church where issues pertinent to our faith could be discussed more widely – so we created a series of seminars where we brought together people with different viewpoints in an atmosphere of openness and mutual respect’ – Fr Michael Bugeja SJ, Chaplain – University of Malta.

A number of pertinent questions and issues within Maltese society and the Maltese Church were addressed in this series of very successful seminars organised by the Unversity Chaplaincy over the past year. During these gatherings, several academics and professionals, all specialists in their field, presented papers on specifically chosen topics related to 'Faith in a Pluralistic Malta' - and now we are happy to announce that these papers have been gathered in one publication which is now available to the public.

The book 'Faith in Pluralistic Malta' was launched at the University Chaplaincy on Tuesday 22nd November .

Ms Pat Bonello, a Social Worker by profession, and one of the contributors in the book (Paper II: Poverty and Social Exclusion – Some Reflections), said that she was ‘honoured to have participated in this process where I had the opportunity to think and reflect on certain issues and internalize them as a Christian. Our challenge as members of the Church is to take on issues, study them and develop a sense of ownership and responsibility. This book acts as a springboard for this process.’

‘This book,’ said Mr Anthony Mifsud of the Kummissjoni Djocesana Zghazagh who sponsored the publication, 'brings out a healthy tension between criticism and great love for the Church. It offers an opportunity to ask questions and offer information and direction, the start of a thought process.’

Rev. Professor Peter Serracino Inglott, who gave an overview of the essence of the publication during the launch, highlighted the thought-provoking  content of the publication, saying that it focused time and again on the most prevalent concerns of our society today, particularly the family.’

Copies of the publication are available for purchase at the price of €5 from the University Chaplaincy, between 7.00am and 5.00pm daily (Mon - Fri).
