The Mid-West Interfaith Network is comprised of people from many diverse faiths and cultures, which aim to encourage awareness, and to promote mutual understanding and respect of different traditions followed by people in Limerick. Since its inception in 2010, the Network has organised a number of events – multi-faith devotional meetings, participation in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade and a visit to President Mary McAleese, to name a few.In the past

In the past decade Ireland has become an increasingly multi-religious and multi-cultural society and our need to learn more about people from other traditions is growing.  Everyone knows that religious and cultural differences can be a cause of tension, or even violence, but often people don’t realise how powerful ordinary relationship building, can be even in the face of serious problems.

All are welcome to come along and contribute or just to relax and enjoy the atmosphere. Free Tea and Coffee will be provided on the day.
