Ottawa Faith Groups Celebrate World Religion Day

While many headlines cite religion as the cause of human conflicts, representatives of Ottawa’s faith communities will expressed a different view at City Hall Sunday, January 16th. For the eleventh consecutive year, members of many of Ottawa’s faith groups came together to mark World Religion Day.  Represented at the event by Councillor Eli El-Chantiry, Mayor Jim Watson proclaimed World Religion Day in Ottawa.

Special guest speaker David Chernushenko, Ottawa city councillor addressed the audience on this years theme “Faith and the Environment: Celebrating Common Ground." “In a time when environmental decline and economic insecurity are among our greatest concerns, many draw from the spiritual resources of religion to rethink unsustainable conceptions of prosperity, to connect with the earth and to create change at the grassroots,” said Heather Harvey, member of the event's organizing committee.
