Hoosiers of Many Faiths in Community

Tell us about your experiences at the Indy Festival of Faiths!

We’re looking for testimonials of past Indy Festivals of Faith. Please share yours!

After the 2018 Indy Festival of Faiths, we asked participants what they thought the biggest impact of the Festival. Here are a few answers.

  • Optics, visible witness that all religions, largest through smallest, have a voice in our community to contribute
  • Bringing different groups around Indianapolis together
  • The fact that it exists at all. It gives someone the opportunity to learn about other paths.

Beyond the obvious impact of educating more people, there is so much joy in the act of humans choosing to respect, understand, and celebrate each other.

  • Starting community dialogues and making connections between groups/individuals
  • Seeing the diverse Indy faith communities in one place. It reminds us of our community and that we are all here to support one another.
  • Showing that interfaith (multi-faith) interactions are possible.

Creating opportunity to experience and engage with people of other faiths and creating a public space where diversity, sharing, dialogue and fun among many faith traditions are center stage.
