Guyana's Golden Jubilee: Interfaith Service

This year - 2016 - Guyana is celebrating it's Golden Jubilee of Independence. I am chairing a committee of volunteers from the Guyanese community and we'll be hosting a number of events this year - mostly free - to commemorate the milestone.

We started off the year with an Interfaith service held at Red River College's Roblin campus. We anticipated about 75 people but was pleasantly surprised to see over 125 people. The representatives of each faith were Meer Ali (Islam), Deo Singh (Hindu) and Brian Archer (Christian). It was so very wonderful to see so much community and fellowship! 

Lots of goodies
