Religion Interfaith Community Louisville
Your Neighbor’s Religion Interfaith
2nd Sundays, 5:00pm (beginning August 13)
McAdams Hall, located on the first floor of St. Paul Church
St. Paul Church and Interfaith Paths to Peace are excited to present Your Neighbor’s Religion. Your Neighbor’s Religion is a 4-part series designed to educate Louisville citizens on some of the various religions that are practiced in the city. Specifically, speakers from Judaism, Baha’i, Buddhism, and Islam will present this fall. This is an opportunity to learn about different religions, our neighbors, and how we can become a strong, supportive community.
The class will be held every 2nd Sunday of the month starting August 13 from 5:00pm-6:30pm, with a time for questions and answers at the end. These classes are free and open to anyone in the community. Bring a friend, bring an acquaintance, or just bring yourself. The more the merrier!
The schedule for the fall is:
- Sunday, August 13
Rabbi Gaylia Rooks of The Temple speaks about the Jewish Faith.

Vegetarian Reception to follow
Bringing peace and understanding to our community takes courage and effort. By allowing ourselves to open our minds and hearts, we take the first step in understanding and appreciating our neighbors. St. Paul Church and Interfaith Paths to Peace hope that this series will help many continue to engage in compassion and foster a compassionate Louisville.
Following this final session on Sunday, November 12, Harry Pickens, local pianist, will perform a free concert in the Gym. Everyone is invited to stay to enjoy this concert together.
