DMARC is supported by a diverse variety of faiths. We are committed to increasing awareness and cross-cultural understanding for cohesive communities. Join us for DMARC’s interfaith tour series:
2014 Beyond Beliefs Tour
Reservations now being taken for spring tour dates.
The tour showcases different styles of faith practices, explores symbolism, and discovers the rich history of architectural design. Tours are guided and include transportation and lunch. The cost for the tour is $30 per person. Seating is limited.
The first series begins with the following host sites (Click here to see our photo album of the August 22nd tour.):
- Beth El Jacob Synagogue – the most
traditional and only Orthodox synagogue
in the Des Moines Area. Discover the
history of tradition and religion, including
the importance of Kosher practices and
meanings behind the Torah Scrolls.
Saints Center for Culture and Fine Arts – definitely worth the drive to Stuart. Beginning with a short video of the fire that nearly destroyed this Catholic church in 1995, see how this church has literally risen from the ashes. Experience interactive kiosks that will enlighten you about the variety of different religions in central Iowa.
- Basilica of St. John – Stunning Romanesque architecture with 46 stained glass windows and gold coffered ceiling is sure to impress you.
One of only two basilicas in the state of Iowa.
