Coming in November: The Rev. Nadim Nassar Returns to St. Paul’s Church

Syrian-born Episcopal priest Nadim Nassar returns to St. Paul’s to preach and teach — and to enlighten us on being Christians in a world with confusion about Islam and Judaism. Nadim has lately been at Trinity Wall Street and on Fox News. At St. Paul’s he will preach and teach on All Saints’ Sunday, November 3. A special Evensong that afternoon is followed by a fundraising dinner for Nadim’s international ministries — see The mission of the organization is to empower Christians everywhere to be a counter force of love and peace to the intolerance and aggression that now prevail in so many of our communities. Nadim is the Director and co-founder of the Awareness Foundation, and co-author of the Awareness Course. He established the Awareness Foundation in 2003 with Bishop Michael Marshall in response to the growing need to study the Christian faith in the context of the 21st century. He is a member of Churches Together in Britain and Ireland’s Inter Faith Theological Advisory Group, the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on International Religious Freedom, and he advises the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. Nadim Nassar lectures, speaks and teaches in the Middle East, Europe and the US; he leads diocesan conferences in the US, UK and Hong Kong. Nadim was born and raised in Lattakia, Syria and he is the only Syrian priest in the Church of England. He has lectured in different universities in London, including the American Intercontinental University where he taught world religions, and London Guildhall University where he developed the ‘Faith and Citizenship’ seminar.
