On the 28th February, Holy Trinity participated in the City of Port Phillip Interfaith Dialogue series of talks. Our guest speaker for the day was Ananta Giri, from the Madras Research Institute of Development in India who spoke on The Self within the Social Context.
With an academic background in Sociology and Anthropology and a special interest in Spirituality, Anata shared with us a deeper understanding on creating and continuing Interfaith Dialogue. Professor Giri has been touring Australia and chose to spend some time here with us in Melbourne.

The season of Lent and Easter provides us with an important opportunity to collectively reflect upon the essence of our faith. By telling the story we stimulate our thinking in the context of a spiritual ethos. To enhance this period of reflection, we have 4 speaking events in which you are invited.
