4th Annual Interfaith Awareness Week
PRESS RELEASE (updated 8/2/21) ::
The Grand Valley Interfaith Network (GVIN) is once again celebrating the diversity of major world religions as part of its fourth annual “Interfaith Awareness Week” (August 2-8, 2021). In recognition of this week-long event, Proclamations are being presented by town and city councils from Palisade, Grand Junction, and Fruita, as well as Mesa County.
The acknowledgements help GVIN raise awareness about the religious diversity in the Grand Valley as well as its local community efforts, such as food drives, blood donations, and a public “ThanksGVIN” service each November. GVIN’s members and friends share these and other opportunities to learn about one another’s religions, spiritual beliefs, or specific secular practices. The faith leaders also participate in social justice events, and do so with mutual respect and reverence for all groups that help support or unite our community.
GVIN encourages individuals to explore the common bonds that religions share with one another.
