and interfaith organizations of Greater Vancouver, hosted a
Pre-Parliament Event in association with the Council of Parliament

Michael’s Church in Surrey.
Bishop M. Ingham of West Minster Anglican Diocese graced the Event
as a Keynote speaker. Representatives from different religions
offerred a short prayer. There were also speeches on the theme of
the event and interreligious activities in British Columbia,
classical Indian dance, round table discussions, a Christian
chorus, closing remarks, and a time for prayer. We hoped to:
• Promote, spur and augment inter-religious dialogue, and further
efforts towards understanding and harmony;
• Increase Vancouver area outreach for the 2009 Melbourne,
• Promote peace and environment awareness among the diverse
traditions of religions and faiths.
