Festival of Faiths
Sep 20th, 2015
The Council of Religious Leaders of Metropolitan Chicago’s “Celebration of the New Year – A Festival of Faiths” will be held on Sunday, September 20, 2015 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
The purpose of the event is to present how different faith communities celebrate the New Year. Six faith communities (Buddhism, Catholic Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Orthodox Christianity and Zoroastrianism) will explain their celebration and will also provide music which reflects their observance.
In addition, the CRLMC will launch their award-winning Interfaith Calendar for 2016. The calendar highlights 17 religious communities and provides a summary of each of their basic tenets, its major religious writings as well as observances. Following the program there will be food provided for everyone attending.
