Learn about shared values among faiths

St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church

Sunday November 3rd 2019 - 2:00pm to

St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church in Kenwood and the Interfaith Council of Sonoma County and United in Kindness campaign are sponsoring a series of panel presentations/discussions promoting greater understanding of different faiths and practices through education.

Speakers for all presentations are associated with the Islamic Networks Group (ING), and are highly qualified educators with substantial backgrounds in a variety of faith traditions. It is hoped that through greater religious literacy and increased compassion, a culture of kindness and humanitarian action will prevail in our beautiful Sonoma County.

This is a free event. St. Patrick’s Church is located at 9000 Sonoma Hwy., Kenwood. Refreshments will be served. Seats are limited and reservations are appreciated. Please contact Bobbiejo at, or call 833-4228.
