The public is invited to attend the City of Charlottetown’s Celebration of Faith – a non-denominational, spiritual event full of music and prayer on August 17 at 1 p.m. in Victoria Park.
The event is part of the City’s 150th anniversary celebrations of the 1864 Charlottetown Conference and the Birthplace of Confederation. The outdoor tented event is free and open to people of all faiths as a celebration of unity, community, diversity and nature. The tent will be located in the field adjacent to Government House.
"In 1864, the Fathers of Confederation gathered to discuss and deliberate about a union to form one country. It is within this same theme of unity that we invite people of various faiths together for this event," said Mayor Clifford Lee. "This is an opportunity for everyone to come together to celebrate the history of this city and this nation and to do so under the umbrella of the faith community."
Celebration of Faith will include performances by: the Confederation Centre Youth Chorus, directed by Donald Fraser and accompanied by Sara White; singer/songwriter Kelley Mooney; harpist/singer Lana Quinn; drummer/singer Gilbert Sark; pianist/singer Angele Hache-Rix and messages from four leaders in the faith community.
"The Celebration of Faith will have some wonderful performances and it’s in a beautiful setting," said Deputy Mayor Stu MacFadyen. "I encourage everyone to join us for this special event."
Accessible parking for Celebration of Faith will be available off Brighton Road with general parking at the provincial government parking lot across the street from Government House.
Following the one-hour event, a labyrinth will be available for meditation with music provided by harpist, Lana Quinn.
