Among throngs of people touring the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center on Sunday were two lanky middle school girls who love to talk about religion.
“What do you believe?” they often ask each other.
Mary Matero, 12, is Catholic and lives in West Roxbury. Mareyama Jalloh, 13, is Muslim and lives in East Boston. The girls met last fall during orientation at John D. O’Bryant School of Mathematics and Science in Roxbury.
They each found it funny how similar their names were and how much they have in common.
