The Interfaith Circle hosted its Interfaith Thanksgiving Gathering on Saturday, Nov. 18, at St. Andrew Lutheran Church in Eden Prairie.
The event made its return after a roughly three-year hiatus. The event had been organized by a committee of people from different faith communities, and Pax Christi Catholic Community hosted it for several years.
Interfaith Circle decided to organize the Interfaith Thanksgiving this year after several people asked the group to bring it back.
This year’s event had participation from multiple faith communities including St. Andrew Lutheran Church, the Muslim community, Pax Christi, the Baha’i’ community, Ecumenical Catholic Communion, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the Chinmaya Hindu community. The presentations included choir performances, readings and a choreographed dance performance.
The Interfaith Circle's mission is to is to celebrate the commonality and diversity of our faith traditions and by doing so foster understanding and acceptance in the southwest metro of Minneapolis.
