Interfaith service planned at Cathedral

 

Please join with local Muslims, Jews and Christians at 7:30 p.m. on Sunday evening, June 26, at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul in Burlington (2 Cherry Street) to celebrate the shared pursuit of peace and mutual respect of the three Abrahamic traditions. The service, in preparation for observing the tenth anniversary of September 11, will include readings of Scripture, music, and traditional prayer from the Quran, Hebrew Scriptures, and the Gospels.

This program at is a local response to a national program initiated by Faith Shared, a project of the Interfaith Alliance and Human Rights First. faithshared@interfaithalliance.org.  It is designed to support religious liberty in the United States and to counter the misperception that our nation is defined by the widely covered images of a marginal few who would burn a Quran or hold anti-Muslim Congressional hearings. The service in Burlington and similar programs around the country reflect America’s longstanding tradition of religious freedom, mutual respect, and pluralism.

For more information, please contact Taysir Al-khatib; the Rev. Diane Nancekivell, or Rabbi Joshua Chasan.
