<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0cm 0cm 0pt"><SPAN lang=EN-US>Fr John Gilligan, from the Interfaith Centre, who will say an opening prayer on peace said, ¡°DCU is the only Inter-Faith Centre in <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Ireland</st1:place></st1:country-region> which is sensitive to all denominations. As an international campus we are in an ideal position to help each other to understand and appreciate of faiths and not be suspicious of other ways of praying. We have so much pressure and stress that Buddhism helps us to reflect and take stock.¡±</SPAN></P>

<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0cm 0cm 0pt"><SPAN lang=EN-US>To view a relic is extremely rare as normally relics are permanently enshrined inside statues and stupas and are rarely made available for public viewing, much less taken out of their resident countries.</SPAN></P>
