Marist Asia Foundation recognises the need to build harmony and understanding between peoples of different religions and cultures. The Inter-Religious and Inter-Cultural Dialogue Programme (IRICD) encourages reflection and activities together to sow the seeds of respect and harmony.
The celebration of the rich traditions of our cultural and religious heritage together can build understanding and peace.
The IRCID team provide reflection experiences, community workshops, and opportunities for dialogue and sharing with religious and cultural leaders. As a border crossing town between Myanmar and Thailand, Ranong has many ethnic groups from Myanmar mixing with Thai and International peoples.
We believe that together our Buddhist, Islam and Christian communities have an opportunity to work together to live our common calling to bring love and compassion to those most in need. This experience can sow seeds of understanding, trust, and harmony in the hearts and minds of the next generation.
