NewGround Presenting at Parliament of the World’s Religions
A group of NewGround alumni will present at the Parliament of the World’s Religions Conference to be held in Salt Lake City with over 10,000 people coming together from all over the world! .
What is the Parliament of the World’s Religions?
The Parliament is the oldest, the largest, and the most inclusive gathering of people of all faith and traditions. The first Parliament took place in 1893. Since then, this historic event has taken place in Chicago, USA; Cape Town, South Africa; Barcelona, Spain; Melbourne, Australia, and now in Salt Lake City, Utah. Its mission is to promote understanding, cooperation, and collaboration among religious communities. Click HERE for more about the Parliament.
