Interfaith guidelines for visiting houses of worship


Interfaith guidelines for visiting houses of worship from Paul McKenna of the Scarboro Missions Interfaith Department

Dear interfaith leaders in the GTA: One cannot really understand a faith tradition without entering into some kind of an experience of that tradition. A house of worship site visit allows for just such an experience. Inside the house of worship, one experiences the tastes, sounds, sights and smells of a faith tradition and its heritage. Here one encounters the tradition’s unique culture – its music, its prayer, its beliefs, its practices, its foods, its rituals, its people.

These comprehensive guidelines enable groups to organize enriching visits to houses of worship. For your convenience, this document is available in PDF and DOC format.
