We know that we are most effective in creating change in our community and in our state when we work in partnership with others.

Please join us for this relaunch and rededication of North Louisiana Interfaith.

We have committed to bringing at least 20 All Souls members and friends to this event.  Can we do more?  Join us and find out.
