The events aim to foster understanding and appreciation of the many different religions in the Stateline area.  Participants were invited to prayer services at the new Mosque and Muslim Community Center, Pilgrim Baptist Church, and Saint Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church.

The meetings are something the president of Rockford Interfaith says are vital to educating people about different cultures.

“There are far more similarities between than differences, far more, maybe a 10 to 1 ratio.  But when we look at various religions we somehow only seem to look at the differences only,” said president of Rockford Interfaith Kanwal Prashar.

Prashar says understanding other religions is key to peaceful relationships in the community.
