Religious Freedom as Practised by Founders

33rd World Religions Conference - Guelph, Ontario - October 6, 2013

GUELPH, Ontario, October 3, 2013 /Canada NewsWire/ - Scholars of 8 faiths and philosophies and some 800 delegates including members from academia, governments and faith organizations are gathering at the River Run Centre for Canada's Largest Multi-Faith event - the 33rd World Religions Conference (WRC), on Sunday, October 6, 2013, first time in Guelph.

Supported by the contributions of so many faith communities that thrive in Canada, WRC has enriched Canadian society by promoting peace, understanding, and tolerance for over 3 decades.

This year's conference will explore the theme, "Religious Freedom as Practised by Founders" which is timely in the wake of recent killing of worshipers in Pakistan.

Distinguished scholars representing Aboriginal spirituality, Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Sikhism and Humanism (Atheists and Agnostics) will present their views on the subject. Numerous faith Groups will participate in poetic and hymn presentations.
