Interfaith Service and March
This year’s interfaith service begins at 7 p.m., Thursday, June 5, and will be held at Wasatch Presbyterian Church at 1700 S. 1700 East.
The Utah Pride Interfaith Coalition is a piece of Utah Pride that helps the LGBTQ community practice their spirituality without judgment. The Utah Pride Interfaith Coalition believes that each person, no matter what culture or sexuality, should honor the divinity within themselves and are capable of holiness with their spirituality. The coalition’s mission is to be able to afford resources and opportunities for the LGBTQ community to express their faith regardless of personal preference or beliefs.
In 2002, the coalition started holding services, and it has been a positive spiritual outlet for many participants at the Utah Pride Festival for 12 years running.
The Interfaith March will begin at the Methodist Church on 200 S. 200 East at 1 p.m., Saturday, June 7. It will join the Trans* and Dyke Marches in progress as they head toward the Utah Pride Festival grounds for the Opening Ceremony at 3 p.m.
