In the build up to becoming the European Capital of Culture 2008, Liverpool is celebrating "Faith in One City" throughout this year. A "Faith Story" CD-Rom and video is being made for all Liverpool schools, which will illustrate how the city's faiths and ethnic groups live in harmony. An extensive events programme will culminate in a Festival of Light featuring large-scale building projections, spectacular illuminations and "reminiscence projects" focusing on older citizens. For more information contact Mike Doran.
