The Maroondah Interfaith Network was launched in 2009 to enhance linkages between the many faiths that exist within the Maroondah community. The Network meets on a regular basis to foster discussion and is planning on holding further community events throughout the year.
This evening I attended the Maroondah Interfaith Network’s first community event, a discussion on the importance of family to coincide with National Family Week. The event included speakers from the Network who spoke about their faiths and the importance of the family within their beliefs.
The formation of the Maroondah Interfaith Network reinforces the growing diversity of the Maroondah community and provides a forum for people to become familiar with the different faiths that exist within our community. The Network helps to enhance the wellbeing of the Maroondah community and it is great the group held its first community based event.
