‘Religious Understanding Day’ event coming to Mt. San Jacinto College library

Whether you subscribe to Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu or some other faith, the Mt. San Jacinto College Diversity Committee and the Hemet-San Jacinto Interfaith Council of the Greater Hemet, San Jacinto and Menifee Region invites the community to attend “Religious Understanding Day” Saturday, April 8, in the MSJC San Jacinto Campus library.

The event from 8:30 a.m. until noon is entitled “Who is My Neighbor? How people of faith relate to others.” It will be day of interfaith dialogue and cooperation. The free event is open to the public. Pre-registration is encouraged. Breakfast will be served, and there is free campus parking on the north lot.

As a person of faith, it is common for people to need to express what they believe clearly. These occasions have better results when people practice in order to better relate their thoughts and beliefs to their neighbors and acquaintances, when time allows.

In America, the Constitution provides certain freedoms, including the freedom of religion. It often seems that people of different faiths are interacting and feeling threatened by world and national events. The event “Religious Understanding Day” hopes to bridge the gap and allow peaceful dialogue between community members and neighbors of all faiths.
