World Interfaith Harmony Celebration, Australia, 2012
World Interfaith Harmony Week seeks to spread the message of harmony and tolerance among the followers of all the world’s religions, faiths and beliefs. It seeks to do this by promoting their common basis of “Love of God and Love of the Neighbor, or Love of the Good and Love of the Neighbor“. Its message includes everyone, excludes no one, and is purely voluntary.
Religions for Peace Australia has joined with several partner organisations to facilitate a World Interfaith Harmony Week event in Australia.
The event organisers have invited over 100 religious, spiritual and community leaders to a morning reception in Queen’s Hall, Parliament House, Melbourne, Australia, to celebrate the second World Interfaith Harmony Week. We will celebrate by gathering together, strengthening our ties, sharing news of our interfaith activities and our future plans, through meeting new friends and creating new partnerships. The Faith Communities Council of Victoria, the Islamic Council of Victoria, the Interfaith Centre of Melbourne, and the Australian Multicultural Foundation are partners in this special event.
