BAHA’I CENTER CLOSED DUE TO COVID

Dear Friends:

Due to COVID,  the Baha’i Center is closed to the general public until further notice.

Two major events this month are streamed from the House of Worship in Wilmette, Illinois. The Round Rock community also hosts its own zoom based commemoration of the Day of the Covenant. The Round Rock Baha’i community will also attend the virtual program for the Ascension of Abdu’l-Baha.

This is what the world-embracing Faith of Baha’u’llah looks like. As we reflect on the role that Baha’u’llah’s son, Abdu’l-Baha, played in guiding the Baha’i world upon his Father’s passing, we can look at the fruits of his loving and focused guidance:

How Interfaith Prayer Gatherings are Changing Communities

RACE UNITY AND THE BAHA’I FAITH

The concern about racism has been expressed since the declaration of Baha’u’llah’s mission in 1863. In the early 1900s, His son, Abdu’l-Baha, noted the challenges unique to the United States in terms of race relations.

For more information about the Baha’i views on racism, please consider reading the following documents:
