Naw-Rúz Holy Day Devotions
March 21 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
You are warmly invited to celebrate Naw-Rúzthe Bahá’í New Year.
Like most happy holy days, the Bahá’í New Year includes singing, eating and socializing. Because Naw-Rúz aslo marks the end of the 19-day Bahá’í Fast, it brings a warm, diverse and fascinating group of people together to celebrate, have fun, enjoy each other’s company and truly welcome the exciting, unlimited possibilities of a new year.
Devotions in the Temple Auditorium, followed by light refreshments in the lower level of the Temple.
About the Bahá’í Calendar and Holy Days
The Baha’i Faith has its own calendar, called the Badí’ Calendar. It is a solar calendar consisting of 19 months of 19 days each (361 days), plus “Intercalary Days” (four in ordinary years and five in leap years) to adjust the calendar to the solar year. The days and months are named after the attributes of God. The Nineteen Day Feast, the primary community gathering for Baha’is in each town and city, is held on the first day of each Baha’i month. Eleven Holy Days mark significant events in Baha’i history.
