SOUTH SIDE INTERRELIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS CONVENE FOR THE “CHICAGO INTERFAITH TROLLEY TOUR” CELEBRATING THE HISTORIC HOLY MONTH OF APRIL
This April, a number of religions’ holy days (Ramadan, Passover, Easter, Vaisakhi, Ridvan and more) overlap for the first time since 1991, meaning that many Muslims, Jews, Christians, Baha’i, Sikhs, Hindus, Buddhists, and others will simultaneously be observing their holy days. This is an incredible opportunity to come together to educate our communities and shape the public narrative about what it means to live well together amidst our religious and cultural diversity.
Chicago Theological Seminary, A Center of Christian-Muslim Engagement for Peace and Justice at Lutheran School of Theology, American Islamic College, The Parliament of the World’s Religions, and the Hyde Park Kenwood Interfaith Council are sponsoring a CHICAGO INTERFAITH TROLLEY TOUR and IFTAR on April 24, 2022.
Riding onboard a trolley, we will explore five sacred spaces in the Hyde Park/ Kenwood neighborhoods of Chicago, learning about the April holy days, as well as the collaborative interfaith work happening in the community. Trolley riders will hear from and visit many different faith-based organizations. Speakers will present from Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Jain, Sikh and Baha’i traditions.
The day will end with an interfaith Iftar dinner at sunset, hosted at Chicago Theological Seminary. Both the trolley and the Iftar are free, ticketed events. Covid protocols are in effect.
