On March 31, 2017, PJI invited the Valencia community to the Hindu Society of Central Florida for an evening of education, yoga, meditation and Indian food. This event was part PJI’s interfaith mission to educate our students on the incredibly diverse and valuable faith communities here in the Central Florida area. Close to 100 students, faculty and staff participated in the event.
Since then, PJI has partnered with and held several very successful events with many other faith communities. Valencia Night events give students an opportunity to reduce ignorance by replacing stereotypes of faith traditions with accurate information based on authentic relationships.
