Inter Faith Week
15th-21st November 2009

"With Jon (Dal Din), I was at the Launch of this week, a week which really seemed to catch people's imaginations..." This article by Sr Elizabeth is one of many about the first National Inter Faith Week in England and Wales, in our Newsletter issue 65, of February 2010. Scotland has been having a national Inter Faith Week for some time.

The Annual Multifaith Pilgrimage for Peace

The London People of Faith for Peace is a group committed to inter-faith harmony and understanding. We are people who believe in the power of religious faith to bring peace and not division. All religions are represented, either in the groups of pilgrims or in the places of worship that we visit, often in both. The Pilgrimage takes place in June each year.

The Westminster Interfaith team is currently thinking about the pilgrimages for 2011 and 2012. Any ideas?
