Interfaith Community Thanksgiving Celebration 2019
We’re planning a beautiful evening of diverse artistic expressions by various faith communities on the theme “Building Bridges in a Broken World.” Join us on November 23rd at 7:30 p.m. at this year’s host location, Pax Christi Catholic Community as we gather to celebrate our diversity, create community, and share in our gratitude through music, song, reading, and dance.
All are welcome!
In recent years, we have had spiritual artistic expressions from the Hindu community, Baha’i community, Pax Christi Catholic Community, Zoroastrian community, St. Stephen Lutheran Church, Sikh community, Ismaili Muslim community, St. Andrew Lutheran Church, Charis Ecumenical Catholic Community, Keepers of the Sacred Tradition of Pipemakers, The Bright Path, Prairie School of Dance, and One Dance Company.
We are so grateful for all participating communities.
There will be one rehearsal for this great event at 10 a.m. The all-community choir, which will be singing our theme together, will also rehearse at 6 p.m. before we start!
What is the Interfaith Circle?
In the past decade, the Southwest Metro of Minneapolis has become increasingly diverse. This has been a source of enormous enrichment as we have learned from each other and grown together. In this age where people who are the “other” are too often misunderstood and even feared, we call upon people of goodwill to build respectful connections between people of faith in our region: To join in an Interfaith Circle of understanding and support.
The ongoing mission of Interfaith Circle is to celebrate the commonality and diversity of our faith traditions and by doing so foster understanding and acceptance.
Interfaith Circle’s programs and activities will increase harmony and understanding in our neighborhoods and towns, and contribute to peace in our state, nation, and world.
