“Let your vision be world embracing…” - Bahá’u’lláh

Throughout history, God has sent to humanity a series of divine Educators - known as Manifestations of God - whose teachings have provided the basis for the advancement of civilization. These Manifestations have included Abraham, Krishna, Zoroaster, Moses, Buddha, Jesus, Muhammad and The Báb.

Bahá’u’lláh, the latest of these Messengers, explained that the religions of the world come from the same Source and are in essence successive chapters of one religion from God.

Bahá’ís believe the crucial need facing humanity is to find a unifying vision of the future of society and of the nature and purpose of life.

Ridvan 2017

Riḍván is a twelve-day festival in the Bahá'í Faith, commemorating Bahá'u'lláh's declaration that he was a Manifestation of God.

It begins around April 20th and continues until May 2nd. The first, ninth and twelfth days of Ridván have special significance to Bahá'is and are celebrated as holy days.

Nawruz 2017

Naw-Rúz (literally meaning “new day”) is the Bahá'í New Year festival that takes place on the spring equinox (i.e. March 20th) and symbolizes new life and rejuvenation. It also is the first day of the first month in the Bahá'í calendar.

Naw-Rúz is usually observed with meetings for prayer and celebration. The festival is often combined with a feast as the sunset before Naw-Rúz signals the end of a nineteen day fasting period.

During Naw-Rúz, time is spent visiting friends and relatives and exchanging gifts. Naw-Rúz is one of the nine Bahá'í holy days on which work is suspended.

Festival of Ayyám-i-Há

The Festival of Ayyám-i-Há refers to a period of four or five intercalary days in the Bahá'í calendar designated to sync up with the solar year. During this time, Bahá’ís celebrate God and his oneness by showing love, fellowship and unity.

It is a time characterized by charity, hospitality, gift giving and goodwill. Also, Baha’is will often participate in various projects of a humanitarian nature.

The Aurora Community

In Aurora, Baha'is work for change, sharing a common purpose and unified vision to promote the oneness of mankind, the elimination of prejudice of all kinds, the equality of men and women and the oneness of God. We are very excited to offer models of unity to our neighbourhood.

The community membership consists of diverse ethnic, age, and occupational backgrounds. We meet regularly to celebrate Baha'i Feasts and Holy Days. We also have devotional meetings, children's classes, and a variety of study classes on spiritual topics. Informal discussion, presentations and fellowship are used to explore our religion in a relaxed, no-pressure atmosphere. We are a "Baha'i Family" and welcome new members. We invite you to learn more about our Faith - its perspective of the past, its understanding of the present, and its vision of the future.
