What participants have said about our Love and Religion workshop:
[I really appreciated] hearing perspectives from other couples and knowing that my fiance and I are not alone and that our issues are not necessarily unique.
It was great to hear peers’ perspectives and experience regarding interfaith relationships. [This] was the first time we spoke to other people going through the same thing.
[We] are so glad we did the Love and Religion workshop. We truly enjoyed every class and … it really opened up many great conversations since doing the classes. We've been able to talk more about our future and what our hopes are!
