What do our faith traditions teach us about the spiritual meaning of death and dying? What can we learn from the ritual and practices (of our faith traditions) surrounding death? 

The Center for Interfaith Relations invites you to join us at Simmons College of Kentucky for a conversation with local faith leaders on the sacred meaning of death from the perspective of their tradition. Hosted in collaboration with "Before I Die...," a Festival for the Living about Dying, this FREE event will explore how our faith traditions understand and relate to death.
