Interfaith Week 2014

Over Interfaith Week (Sun 16th Nov – Sat 22nd Nov) members of UCLan Pagan Society and myself have been involved in events led by UCLan, Lancashire and Preston Faith Forums.

For me as Interfaith Rep this included giving an introduction to Paganism and the river Ribble as a sacred site on Preston’s Faith Trail, placing some tiles in UCLan Faith Forum’s Multifaith Mosaic, taking part in a panel on religion and gender at Cardinal Newman College and attending a Celebration of Faith at County Hall.

The latter was organised by Andy Pratt, who is the leader of Lancashire Faith Forum. This was a great opportunity to meet with members of forums from across Lancashire and to introduce UCLan Faith Forum and Pagan Soc to others. I was surprised to discover that few forums had contact with Pagans and none had Pagans on their executive committees. I’m hoping that now Paganism is recognised as a religion within the Interfaith Network this will change.
