Our May 17 Interfaith Architecture Tour Looks at Nature's Influence on Buddhist and Catholic Traditions

We're excited to announce the return of one of our most popular programs, our Annual Interfaith Architecture Tour on Sunday, May 17, 2009 from 1:30- 4:00 pm (check-in starts at 1:00 pm) at Mount Michael Benedictine Abbey located at 22520 Mount Michael Road in Elkhorn, Nebraska (just on the Northwest edge of Omaha). The theme of this year's tour is the "Influence of Nature on Buddhist and Catholic Religious Art and Architecture." The tour will feature speakers on this topic as well as a tour of a prime example of this: the beautiful buildings and grounds of Mount Michael Benedictine Abbey. The tour will be followed by a reception with light refreshments hosted by Mount Benedictine Abbey. Directions and registration details can be found at the event website:

As we have done for past tours, we have teamed up with the Omaha chapter of the American Institute of Architects who will be offering learning units for members to attend. So if you are an architect this is a painless, even interesting way to get in your professional development credits.
We also are partnering with Tinh Tam (the Council of Buddhist Study) and the Archdiocese of Omaha to offer this great program. The cost is $5 per person and is non-refundable. Pre-registration is strongly suggested. Give us a ring (933-4647) or email us at to register.
