Jain-Catholic Dialogue

Followers of the Jain religious tradition have participated in interreligious events sponsored by the Holy See since the 1986 Prayer for Peace in Assisi.

Since 1997, DID has sent good-will messages every year for the feast of Mahavir Janma Kalyanak Diwas, the birth anniversary of Tirthankar Mahavir, the founder of Jainism.
