Building A Better Bensalem Together celebrated its 8th Annual Unity Week, in collaboration with MLK Day of Service, from January 21-January 25, 2013.
During Unity Week we highlighted the diversity in the Bensalem Community by going to various Houses of Worship to learn about their different faiths and beliefs.
The Houses of Worship that participated this year were: Scottsville United Methodist Church in partnership with the Feasterville Ministerium, Bensalem United Methodist Church, BAPS Swaminarayan, Mongkoltepmunee Buddhist Temple, Faith Unity Islamic Organization, St. Ephrem’s Roman Catholic Church, Tifereth Israel Congregation and St. Katharine Drexel Shrine & Mission Center.
A few of the events included student performances from Bensalem Christian Day School, Judy Sare Pre-School, Struble Show Choir and the Bensalem High School Multi-Cultural Club.
Approximately 850 community members attended the events throughout the week, showing a strong support for what Unity Week represents.
Attendees were asked to donate canned, non-perishable food items to the locations to be distributed to local food pantries in Bensalem Township.
