Interfaith Pilgrimages and Classes
People learn more about their neighbor's faith through
short and long-term classes. Pilgrimages to local interfaith sites (mosque, church, synagogue,
or temple) have grown in popularity.
Annual Community Prayer Breakfast
The Prayer Breakfast gathers people from throughout
the community for prayer and as a reminder of our shared vision for peace.
