World Interfaith Harmony Week (WIHW) is an annual observance that takes place the first week in February. It was first proposed by King Abdullah II of Jordan and adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 2010, through a resolution. "The week provides an opportunity for people of different faiths and beliefs to come together and promote dialogue, mutual understanding, and cooperation."

In recognition of WIHW, Charter for Compassion is offering two events:

February 2, 2024 at 3 p.m. PST - Introducing ‘The Letter’ with Kate Trnka - film and discussion of The Letter: A Message For Our Earth. Register here.

The movie tells the story of the Pope’s call to care for our planet. In 2015, Pope Francis wrote Laudato Si’, a letter to every single person in the world! There are four ‘voices’ that Pope Francis calls specifically for in Laudato Si’: the Voices of the Poor, the Indigenous, the Youth, and Wildlife.

"This documentary follows their journey to Rome and the extraordinary experiences that took place there and is packed with powerfully moving personal stories alongside information about the planetary crisis and the toll it’s taking on nature and people."

February 5, 6, & 7, 2024 at 9.15 a.m. PST - Be still. Listen. Know with Kate Trnka - "It is in the stillness that we are connected to the sacred. It is in the silence that we hear. It is with our senses that we know and experience a oneness with all that is. Open up to the wonder, beauty, and spirit of the natural world as we tune into our fifty-four natural senses and cherish each “now” moment. Take part in a variety of interactive activities that engage your senses as you delight in the exquisiteness of nature through this live online event. Each of the three days will provide different activities for you to engage in allowing you to immerse yourself in the awesome wonder of nature." Register here.
