Following the successful weekly Lunch & Learn series — thanks to a great collaboration with Christ Church Cathedral — a session was held for input on people’s interests – “Where should we go from here?” A lot of creative ideas and thoughts were expressed, many coalescing along certain lines, which was a great help in planning the year. As a result we’re launching a few new programs, one of which is “Travel the World’s Religions”
Travel the World’s Religions
This new educational series visits the world’s great religions in all their diversity and their unity, right here in Victoria! The goal: to create opportunities for people to familiarize themselves with each faith, mingle with people of other religions and feel comfortable and welcome within each space. VMS plans to create passports that can be stamped at each visit.
