Celebrating our Diversity Now

Event Date: 
Monday, February 5, 2018 (All day)

The Armenian Orthodox Diocese of Canada is organizing a Canada-wide event called “Celebrating Our Diversity Now” and there will be a gathering of young adults aged 18-35 and clergy in Toronto in Feb. 5-9, 2018.

This project would bring together young leaders and clergy from the Roman Catholic, the Anglican, the Evangelical Lutheran, the Russian Orthodox, the Greek Orthodox, the Serbian Orthodox, the Romanian Orthodox, the Baptist, the Coptic, the Syriac, the Ethiopian, the Maronite, the United, the Shia, the Sunni, the Jewish, and the Armenian Apostolic Communities.

At each meeting, each faith community will be represented by 3 young leaders of 18-35 years of age, and one clergy, appointed by the religious communities themselves, bringing the total number of the participants to 216 young leaders and 72 clergy.

It is anticipated that the Project would provide the first-hand information about the Canadian religious diversity, each other’s religions, and the ecumenical and interfaith dialogue in Canada; an interregional interfaith network of young leaders will be established and a new bilingual on-line platform for the youth interfaith dialogue would be created.

I am wondering if you can help us to find Roman Catholic young adults (aged 18-35) to go to this event?

We understand that young people may not be able to commit to coming all 5 days of the event. They are free to come to some or all of the sessions and dates.

There is no fee to come to this event.

The message below and the attached draft Agenda will give you more information about this event.

Thank you very much for your help with this. Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions.

Please feel free to direct interested persons to me. I look forward to hearing from you.

Blessings,
