Religions of the World
World Religions of St. Louis Map
Typically, you can explore religions of the world while at the Festival of Nations. This year we invite you to explore religious diversity in our region through this interactive map, which shows houses of worship from 34 different traditions represented on Interfaith Partnership’s Cabinet. The map is imperfect and far from comprehensive. But we hope it provides you with an opportunity to explore St. Louis geography through the lens of religious diversity.
Questions for Exploration
- How many different religious or ethical traditions are you familiar with?
- How many different religions do you think are practiced by people throughout the greater St. Louis area?
- Zoom in on an area of St. Louis where you live or have lived. How many places of worship are within a few miles? Are there any that are new to you?
- Find an area of St. Louis you are unfamiliar with. How many different religious traditions are represented there?
- If you are religious, have you ever visited a house of worship different than your own? What do you recall from that experience?
Want to learn more? Visit The Pluralism Project to learn more about the world’s religions. And consider participating in upcoming events hosted by Interfaith Partnership of Greater St. Louis this fall. Visit interfaithstl.org for more information.
We depend on generous gifts from supporters of the festival to ensure that the work of the International Institute of St. Louis continues, especially now during the COVID-19 pandemic when the need is greater and resources are less.
