The Wimberly School of Religion at Oklahoma City University will host the World Religions Expo from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday in the Bishop W. Angie Smith Chapel on NW 23, between Blackwelder and Kentucky avenues.

The event is free to the public.

The expo offers participants an opportunity to learn about different religions in an open-house, come-and-go setting. Students from classes on world religions and biblical literature, in partnership with community representatives from the religious groups, will give presentations at tables throughout the event area.

Participants will receive a “passport” to fill with stamps from each religion represented in the expo, which will include Islam, Buddhism, several denominations of Christianity, Conservative Judaism, Reform Judaism, Sikh and American Indian. The Interfaith Alliance also will be represented. The passport will be stamped as the participant visits each respective table presentation.

Many tables will include items and foods of significance to the religious groups. There will be demonstrations of some religious practices.
