Church Hosts Interfaith Tribute

  • 23 February 2011

An interfaith musical tribute featuring song, dance, scripture, and prayers from a variety of religious traditions took place on Sunday, February 20, at the Tabernacle on Temple Square.

A number of events at local synagogues, chapels, Hindu temples and other locations preceded Sunday’s concert and showcased the traditions, practices, and strengths of Utah’s religious community. Several more events are scheduled for the remainder of February.

The Interfaith Music Tribute originated the Sunday evening before the 2002 Olympic Games as a time of prayerful reflection in preparation to welcoming the world to Utah. It returns every February on the anniversary of the Games.

February is Interfaith Month in Utah. Interfaith activities are intended to keep alive the legacy and spirit of global harmony and understanding inspired by the Olympics.
