Xaverian-2019 World Interfaith Harmony Week
Xaverian-2019 World Interfaith Harmony Week

The World Interfaith Harmony Week provides a platform, one week in a year, when all interfaith groups and other groups of goodwill can show the world what a powerful movement they are. The thousands of events organized by these groups often go unnoticed not only by the general public, but also by other groups themselves. This week will allow for these groups to become aware of each other and strengthen the movement by building ties and avoiding duplicating each other's efforts. See all the events here.
