Holy Days Converging in April Spark Interfaith Celebrations

Luis Andres Henao of the Associated Press reports that the many religious holy days in April are prompting some communities to organize interfaith gatherings. “It’s a convergence that happens only rarely,” Henao writes. “Coinciding with Judaism’s Passover, Christianity’s Easter, and Islam’s holy month of Ramadan, Buddhists, Baha’is, Sikhs, Jains and Hindus also are celebrating their holy days in April.” The interfaith events range from sharing meals and rituals to focusing on refugee resettlement and climate change activism.
