Greater Cincinnati’s first-ever Festival of Faiths on Sunday, June 24, 2018, at Xavier University’s Cintas Center will bring together neighbors, families and spiritual leaders to celebrate the area’s religious diversity. The day will feature faith-based exhibits, dialogues, workshops, art, music and fun activities for all ages.  The event is free and open to the public.

The theme for this inaugural event is “Compassion through Action” in recognition of the role the faith community has historically played and continues to play in advancing a civil, socially just and welcoming community for all who live, work and visit Greater Cincinnati.  The event will also serve to unify our community, focusing on our similarities and celebrating our differences.

Kids4Peace Cincinnati:  Growing and Expanding offerings

The Summer of 2017 was a year of significant growth for Kids4Peace Cincinnati.  The number of campers doubled from the first camp in 2016. Twenty -one campers attended camp, and several of those were members who had attended the first camp in 2016.  The second-year campers continued to build on some of the skills learned in the first year and facilitated some of the sessions for the new first- year campers.  A few of those first- year campers remarked that they really enjoyed having the other campers teaching the sessions.  At completion of the Day Camp, families and friends of the campers joined -in for an interfaith pot luck dinner.  More than 60 people attended that dinner, and now the pot luck dinners are continuing throughout the year. We also expanded the year-round sessions for the campers.  The new friends, made during the Day Camp session, were invited to get together again and attend additional programs throughout the year.   Read more..
