National Day of Prayer

  • It has been observed for the last 26 years, on the first Thursday of May, initially on the front lawn of City Hall, and more recently at the Coral Springs Charter School. Open to all the Houses of Worship that come together for a celebration and candlelight ceremony. Each House of Worship designates a youth from their congregation who addresses the audience for about 2 minutes, delivering a message of unity, friendship and hope

Clergy Coalition

  • Within the City of Coral Springs, residents are served by 38 religious congregations representing 22 different faith traditions. Through informal monthly fellowship the spiritual leaders of these various Coral Springs faith circles not only support each other in general, but also work together to plan two community-wide religious events each year: the pre-Thanksgiving Interfaith Unity Service in November and, with the City's Multi-Cultural Advisory Committee, the National Day of Prayer observance in May.

Interfaith Seder Service

  • Co-celebrated by a Christian minister and Jewish Rabbi, pointing out the similarities of the traditions and customs between Easter and Passover.

Eid Celebration

  • A community event held for 10 years after September 11, 2001. The purpose of this event was to encourage people to learn more about the Muslim community and culture with a view to eliminating any pre-existing fear or antagonism that usually stems from non-awareness of a particular group. This event was held in partnership with the Clergy Coalition, the Northwest Regional Library and The Muslim Neighbors of Coral Springs to provide educational information, clarification of truths and misconceptions, music, children’s crafts, henna hand painting and samples of cuisine from the Muslim world. Dialogues on topics of interest in this area have proved to be very educational and enlightening.
