I grew up in a Catholic home. My father converted to Catholicism the year that I made my First Holy Communion. But, more importantly than being raised in a home with religion was that my parents raised my four older siblings and me to be good people by using our faith in God as our compass. And did I mention that I was raised in the Deep South where ours was the only Catholic church in the county? Luckily, Prince William has more offerings than my hometown did.
If you are looking for your compass, Prince William has many options. We are as diverse in religious communities as we are in ethnicities and race. This month’s cover story, “Finding Faith: Religions Across the Region” by Helena Tavares Kennedy explores Christian, Jewish, Muslim and Pagan religions that have places of worship within the county lines. Find out how some of these religions vary and how their leaders come together to help our diverse community.
