Archbishop Nichols visits the Zoraostrian Centre in Harrow

Archbishop Vincent Nichols has visited the Zoroastrian Trust Funds of Europe, based at the Zoroastrian Centre in Harrow on Friday 18 November.

The visit took place in the run-up to Inter Faith Week which starts on Monday 20 November.

Zoroastrianism is one of the world's oldest monotheistic religions, and was founded by the Prophet Zoroaster in ancient Iran around 3,500 years ago.

Inter Faith Week, in England, Northern Ireland and Wales, has a special focus on interreligious dialogue. A rich calendar of events – talks, meals, lectures and other events – will help this week become a special one, with many a chance for communities to learn about and from each other. For example, in Watford there will be an Interfaith Pilgrimage in which participants will walk to five venues in Watford including Holy Rood Catholic Church, the Watford and District Synagogue, and the Cambridge Road Mosque.

Many Catholics across England and Wales, and in Northern Ireland, will take part in the week in a range of different ways, may it be by attending one of the various events, or playing host to one.
