Festival of Lights Service

Commemorating the 20th Annual Festival of Lights Service an official Pathways to PoWR 2018 pre-Parliament event. 

Many religions use light -- inner and outer -- to symbolize their prayers and hopes for what is right with the world, especially at this holiday season. Representatives from the Baha'i, Buddhist, Christian, Divine Feminine, Indigenous, Hindu, Jewish, Muslim, Sikh, Sufi and Zoroastrian traditions will share with us their faith, their passion and their creativity in sacred words, poetry, chants, songs, and music.

There will be plenty of light to go around. We light a candle for each of the religions represented, as well as one candle to symbolize our unity, mutual support, and hopes and prayers for world peace.

Please join us for this inspiring and festive interspiritual celebration, as we prepare for the World Parliament of Religions 2018 major event in Toronto.
