Celebrations across Toronto, Canada

In the neighbourhoods of Toronto, bicentenary celebrations took place in homes, community centres, parks, and school auditoriums. Communities shared with each other prayers, writings, and accounts from the life of Bahá’u’lláh. Youth prepared banners and displays depicting key moments in the life of Bahá’u’lláh. Children shared stories and songs to share with their community. In one Toronto neighbourhood, a group of younger youth spent three days making paper lanterns for every family—symbolic of the light of Bahá’u’lláh’s teachings and the influence they have had in the neighbourhoods.
