2024 United Nations World Interfaith Harmony Week

In 2010, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed the first week in February annually as World Interfaith Harmony Week, with the goals of showcasing the importance of interfaith dialogue among people of diverse faith backgrounds, belief systems, and spiritual practices, and of spreading the message of goodwill and respect for others.

For the third year, Pikes Peak Habitat's Interfaith Build for Unity subcommittee -- a group of individuals from diverse backgrounds and faiths who unite to build affordable homes for El Paso County families -- invite you to join us in celebrating this initiative.

This year, our subcommittee asks community members to consider: Who Is Your Neighbor? For this year's initiative, our subcommittee is focused on providing opportunities for diverse faith communities to partner with local government officials to address the need for affordable homeownership and consider what the concept of neighborliness looks like for different faith traditions.

Check out the various ways that you can engage with Pikes Peak Habitat by putting your faith into action to help us mark this monumental week.
