The Faith Next Door

This is the remarkable story of Calvary Episcopal Church and Batavia Islamic Center, who have shared a facility since 1987, before “interfaith” was a buzzword, as the mosque's cofounder puts it. The church had unused space, the mosque needed a home, and a relationship between different religious neighbors began. Over the years, Calvary Episcopal Church has offered its members and the local community numerous opportunities to learn about Islam. Together, the church and the mosque have also played an important role in fostering local interfaith harmony, especially in the aftermath of September 11, 2001.

Keywords:   Calvary Episcopal Church, Batavia Islamic Center, mosque, Islam, religious neighbors, interfaith harmony, September 11
