Mormons in Chicago Host Meetinghouse Interfaith Tour and Concert

Additional Resource

An interfaith concert was the setting for an invitation to tour a house of worship for members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in downtown Chicago, Illinois.

 

Members of several faiths attended, including Jewish, Presbyterian, Baha’i and others. In addition to the tour a program of interfaith music was presented, involving members of the Baha'i, First Methodist, Hindu, Saint Mary of the Woods Parish, Sikh and Latter-day Saint congregations. As a concluding number to the concert, all the choirs sang, “Let There Be Peace on Earth.”

The Clark Street meetinghouse, located at 822 North Clark Street in downtown Chicago, serves as the home for four congregations that, for the past seven years, have been meeting in one of the city’s public schools.

More than 1,000 people toured the six-story meetinghouse during the three-day tour and open house.
