Chittister and other memembers of the Global Peace Initiative of Women are to attend a dialogue in Beirut, Lebanon, among religious leaders in the Middle East and Asia aimed at revitalizing their individual spiritual traditions in an effort to build understanding, mutual respect and greater inter-religious cooperation.

Her group will also meet with religious and government officials in Damascus, Syria, at the invitation of the Syrian ambassador to the United States.
