Religious Tolerance Week to be Held at Mount Union College

April 22, 2010

The Mount Union College Interfaith Club will sponsor Religious Tolerance Week April 2-4.

On Monday, April 2, Deb Chaney, a member of the Canton Unitarian Universalist Congregation, will present Common Ground: A Celebration of What We Share in Chapman Hall at 7 p.m.

On Tuesday, April 3 at 7 p.m. in the Alumni Room of the Hoover-Price Campus Center, there will be a panel discussion of young people of different faiths. Questions that will be addressed may include: What does religious tolerance mean to you? What does it mean to be of your particular faith in America? and What has been your faith journey? The discussion will be moderated by Dr. Donald Hobson, professor emeritus of the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies and former chaplain of the College.

Religious Tolerance Week festivities will conclude on Wednesday, April 4 when the Interfaith Club, along with the Gay Straight Alliance, will present the movie Saved! at 8 p.m. in Bracy Hall Room L06.

All events are free and open to the public.

The Interfaith Club was established during the 2007 Spring Semester with the hopes of bringing greater religious diversity and understanding to Mount Union College and to provide a safe forum for discussion for people of all faiths.
