Baha’i community prepares for bicentenary of founder

Event on Oct. 21 at Abbotsford Arts Centre

The Baha’i community in Abbotsfod holds an event on Saturday, Oct. 21 to celebrate the bicentenary of Baha’u’llah.

The event begins at 6:45 p.m. at the Abbotsford Arts Centre (2329 Crescent Way) and is open to the public.

Baha’u’llah is the prophet-founder of the Baha’i faith – a new-world religion promoting the theme of unity in diversity. He was born in Persia in 1817, and was exiled several times, arriving in the Holy Land near Mount Carmel in 1868, for the final 24 years of his world-transforming mission.

The bicentenary program in Abbotsford will offer a series of reflections on the significance of Baha’u’llah and musical and video tributes, as well as socializing and refreshments.
