Welcome

Des Cahill, Chair, Religions for Peace, Australia

Welcome to the website of Religions for Peace Australia, formerly called the World Conference of Religions for Peace (WCRP) Australia. WCRP was formed in 1970 and is now the world’s largest interfaith organization committed to fostering peace between religions and nations and to social cohesion within nations.

WCRP Australia was founded several years later, and is Australia’s major community-based interfaith organization. I hope this website will provide you with details about us. We encourage people of faith and all people of goodwill to join with us as members to work in Australia and across the world for peace and goodwill.

A major event for Australia in which RfP Australia has played a major organizing role has been the Parliament of the World’s Religions held in Melbourne on 3rd – 9th. December, 2009 when the interfaith movement gathered to explore their religious heritages, to participate in interreligious activities and to address the world’s pressing issues.

I invite you to explore our website and learn from it as we build it over the coming years.

Desmond P. Cahill (Prof.)
Religions for Peace Australia (RfP Australia)
