 Addressed Pope Francis

The Vice-Chancellor of Bethlehem University, Brother Peter Bray, addressed Pope Francis last week at the World Congress, Educating Today and Tomorrow: A Renewing Passion, in Rome.


The New Zealand-born De La Salle Brother delivered an inspiring address on the work of Bethlehem University at the congress in the Vatican.

As the university's Vice Chancellor, Br Peter spoke directly to His Holiness about the role Bethlehem University is playing in helping to promote religious harmony in the Middle East.

(Around 70 per cent of the university's students are Muslim, while around 70 per cent of its staff members are Christian.)

Br Peter told the gathering of 2,000 people that the university played a critical role in promoting interfaith dialogue and understanding over many years.
Sharing his passion for Bethlehem University, he said such work was more critical than ever before at a time of heightened unrest across many parts of the Holy Land.
