Celebrate Compassion in Chicago’s Pre-Parliament Event with Arun Gandhi and a Faiths Fest

September 30, 2014

The Parliament of the World’s Religions is coming home. For the first time since 1993, the largest, most historic global interfaith summit is returning to the United States in October 2015. We are honored to invite you to experience a taste of this life-changing gathering on November 13, 2014. Join us in the Parliament’s home city by hosting your own table or purchasing tickets as together we look with great excitement toward our 2015 Parliament of the World’s Religions in Salt Lake City, Utah!
A celebratory, pre-Parliament event, benefitting the Parliament of the World’s Religions:
5:30pm:  A Festival of Faiths Reception
6:30pm:  Benefit Dinner and Program
8:00pm:  Dessert Reception
Chicago Cultural Center, Sidney R. Yates Gallery, 78 East Washington Street, Chicago
For Tickets: Chicago Pre-Parliament Benefit on Eventbrite
This vibrant evening of learning and celebration will be a glimpse of the Parliament to come! At the Faiths Fest Reception you will rediscover the unique and varied gifts of our gathered faith communities. Two dynamic new videos, produced by Baha’i Media Services will be premiered, showcasing our rich tradition and pointing us toward a bright future. Over dinner, you will be engaged and inspired by our brief program including a call to action from Dr. Arun Gandhi, grandson of Mohandas Gandhi, and rousing performances, bringing the spirit of the Parliament directly to you. And, the most compelling aspect of the evening will be your opportunity to pre-register for the eagerly anticipated 2015 Parliament!
We hope that you will be with us on this momentous evening! If you are unable to be physically present, please consider a generous donation. As we move boldly towards our long awaited 2015 Parliament, your support and presence helps us step with confidence into our future. Thanks to you, that future is here.
