Roots to Parliament: Inter Faith Week 2021
Welcome from Mr Speaker
"For some of us, faith is at the core of everything we do – it is our guiding light, our discipline, and brings us comfort in good times and bad. It is a deeply personal part of who we are, yet it also bonds us with others nearby and around the world.
"I am proud that here at Parliament we celebrate many different religions and festivals which is why I am excited to use Inter Faith Week to share our experiences alongside communities across the UK during this nationwide celebration.
"Reading through these stories, I am struck by the common desire to help others and contribute to society, a theme I see repeated across all faiths. I hope this exhibition encourages you to take a moment to reflect on your own connection to faith and join others in conversation to learn more about the amazing people who are part of our thriving Parliamentary village. "
Sir Lindsay Hoyle, Speaker of the House of Commons
