A group of New Orleans-based Islamic spiritual leaders, imams, have invited Loyola students and faculty to engage in an open-forum discussion about the Islamic faith in Nunemaker Auditorium on Thursday, Sept. 10 at 7 p.m..

The leaders are aiming to address Islamic misconceptions and present the Loyola community with the true Islamic message of peace, charity and goodwill.

Gregory Aymond, archbishop of New Orleans, will welcome and introduce the imams as a sign of religious coexistence.
