For the first time since 2019, an Interfaith Breakfast will be held in Grande Prairie. Formerly known locally as the Mayor’s Interfaith Breakfast, started in 2011 by then-Mayor Bill Given, the event has been rebranded to Council’s Interfaith Breakfast to be held the morning of October 4th.
The event is meant to bring together faith leaders and the public to build community across religions. This year, the keynote speaker will be Pastor Mike Vanboom of the First Christian Reformed Church in Edmonton, who is said to be an advocate and educator for alternative housing models.
“Council’s Interfaith Breakfast allows us to foster an ongoing connection with Grande Prairie’s faith communities and continue our work towards an inclusive and caring community,” says Mayor Jackie Clayton. “Council is eager to welcome Grande Prairie’s faith leaders and residents to this much-anticipated event to connect and discuss important topics about our community.”
The event costs $20 to attend. It will be held at the Teresa Sargent Hall in the Montrose Cultural Centre starting at 7 a.m.
