Women of Faith: Embrace Responsibility, Compassion, Peace
The 35th Annual Women’s Interfaith Conference will be held on Thursday, April 23rd, 2015, at Central Reform Congregation (5020 Waterman Ave, at Kingshighway). Conference runs from 8:15am to 2:30pm and parking is available at Central Reform Congregation as well as across the street at First Unitarian Church.
The conference is designed to promote understanding, respect and cooperation among women of all faiths and to facilitate opportunities for dialogue.
