Special invitation for the InterFaith weekend of 16.05. 2021

We invite you to initiate an inter-religious encounter in the run-up to the InterFaith Sunday on 16 May 2021. We would like to motivate you, If possible, to meet with sisters and brothers of other religions where you live, for example for a meal together or for a visit to a synagogue or mosque or whatever is possible for you.

We would be delighted if you could make such an inter-religious rendezvous in the first half of May 2021.

The 16 May 2020 can then be the day of the crowning finale, when we will not only share our online prayers for peace, but you will run together with believers of other religions that you have met in your regions.

We will set up an exchange platform on our website where you will have the opportunity to share your running experiences as well as your interreligious meetings by word, picture and video with everyone.

Let us do what is possible! The Corona virus forces us to be creative. Let the tree of our inter-religious network continue to grow.

We wish you to remain confident in all your challenges, especially under the living conditions of the pandemic. Take care and have fun preparing for the run and making contacts!

InterFaith run cancelled!

The municipal authorities of Luxembourg have cancelled the ING Night Marathon 2020 because of the Corona crisis. Therefore our InterFaith run cannot take place this year. That’s a pity, but health comes first. We hope that you all come through the crisis healthy and that we will meet again in 2021.
