Wyndham Interfaith Network – Places of Worship Tour
On Wednesday 3rd May 2017, a group of 26 Wyndham residents took part in the Places of Worship Tour. Wyndham Council organised a bus for interested residents to visit The Werribee Islamic Centre, The Church of Latter Day Saints and St. Andrew’s Catholic Church. St. Andrew’s was the first stop on the tour and we gave a brief history of the parish and our churches. We talked about the architecture of the church and points of interest, such as the stain glass windows, the tabernacle, the confessionals etc. There was also discussion about Catholic beliefs and traditions.
It was a great session with people of other faiths asking interesting questions. It was a great opportunity to open our doors to others and to hear about other faiths as well.
The Wyndham Interfaith Network will be organising more of these tours in the future.
