Linz, Austria - The Upper Austrian chapter of UPF organized an interreligious celebration on May 25, 2014, commemorating the Global Day of Parents, a day initiated by the United Nations in 2012. After an introduction to the respective UN resolution, five religious leaders gave remarks on the importance of parenthood according to their holy scriptures and practice.
