A joyous and celebratory mood was in evidence on Monday 8th of May when the Waterford Interfaith Forum was officially launched by the Metropolitan Mayor of Waterford Cllr. John Hearne. The venue was the beautiful Coastguard Cultural Centre in Tramore.

This launch marks the culmination of many months of exploratory meetings with the great diversity of Faith representatives in Waterford. It is hoped that this Interfaith Forum will be a positive contributor to the cultural life of Waterford. The importance of Interfaith in our communities is that it uniquely seeks to make a stand for and give a voice to people of faith and spiritual beliefs in our ever more secular societies.

The approach of this Forum group would be to contribute in practical ways to the integrative needs of our now ever more multi ethnic communities.

Also launched on the same evening
