#HealthyDMU: Take part in Inter-Faith Week at DMU

National Inter-Faith Week starts on Sunday 11 November and DMU, along with De Montfort Students’ Union, will be arranging a series of events over the following days. Everyone at the university is welcome to join in.

The aims of the week are to strengthen inter-faith relations; increase awareness of the different and distinct faith communities in the UK (celebrating and building on the contribution their members make to their neighbourhoods and wider society); and increasing understanding between people of religious and non-religious beliefs.

DMU’s events also form part of the university’s new #OpenFaith initiative to encourage students to come together in sharing humanitarian values.

Inter Faith Week - main

On Monday 12 November, from noon to 2pm, students across campus will be handing out white roses with quotes from scriptures to promote the diverse religions we have at DMU and highlight how a small gesture of kindness can go a long way.

On Wednesday 14 November, students and staff (of any faith or none) are invited to a Reflective Outlook service in the Breathing Space in the Portland Building at 1.30pm.

From 3-4pm on the same day in the Breathing Space, you are welcome to join DMUactive in a yoga session to get rid of any midweek stress.

Thursday 15 November will see religious groups from across DMU get together for Campus Cohesion, where they’ll be offering food, activities and a chance to learn more about each of the faiths. Drop-in at the Breathing Space from any time between noon and 4pm.

To end our week of events, on Friday 16 November there will be a half-hour mindfulness session in the Breathing Space, starting at 3.30pm.
