A shared Tri-Faith Center on the Tri-Faith Commons will serve as a hub of collaboration for social events, educational activities and conference facilities. The center will welcome people of all faiths and will become a model for peaceful co-existence that builds on America’s promise of religious freedom and our desire for understanding. We hope for it to become a place where people from throughout the country come to study and interact. The Tri-Faith Center is anticipated to open in early 2020 (conceptual rendering shown above).
Even as we wait for the Tri-Faith Center to be built, we are sponsoring activities that include speaking engagements, children’s programs, shared holidays between congregations and annual picnics.
The design of the Tri-Faith Center will reflect our commitment to collaboration, connectedness and community with our Abrahamic faith partners. The building will include:
- A large, tent-like space, to be used for dinners, performances and other multi-faith gatherings
- Informal meeting and common spaces
- Gathering spaces for retreats in a contemplative environment
- Advanced information and communication technologies and space for permanent and traveling displays
- Enhanced broadband internet services to support electronic learning
- Office space for programming and administrative staff
- A digital research library and archives
- Catering kitchen
Once completed, the Tri-Faith Commons will be a hub of educational events and resources, including webinars and other digital programs that can be used worldwide.
Once built, the Tri-Faith Center will be a place where all are welcome to visit and learn. In the meantime, please join our mailing list to receive our email newsletter. We’ll keep you updated with the latest news about building progress, special events, and more.
