Since ancient times pilgrimage has been a part of almost all world religious traditions.
This day pilgrimage will offer the opportunity to learn about the Baha’i faith and be inspired by its teachings, art, architecture, and music. The Baha’i House of Worship in Wilmette, Illinois, was completed in 1953 and has become a landmark visited by people from around the world.
Beliefs in the oneness of humanity, acknowledgment of the common threads among all major religions, the connection between the human spirit, and the betterment of the world are core to the Baha’i faith.
We will leave by coach bus from Siena Retreat Center’s parking lot at 8:00am. At the House of Worship we will have a guided tour, time to experience the Visitor’s Center, gardens, and gift shop and to attend the 12:30pm devotional program which includes the Baha’i House of Worship Choir. A buffet lunch will follow at Prairie Moon in Evanston. We will return to Siena Retreat Center at approximately 4:45pm.
