Locals to pray for release of Baha'is in Iran

If you go

The Baha’is of Durango and La Plata County will hold a prayer gathering to support the seven members of their religion who will go on trial in Iran next week. The gathering will take place at 2:30 p.m. today at the Rocky Mountain Retreat Center, 848 East Third Ave.


The group also is asking locals to contact U.S. Rep. John Salazar, D-Manassa, and U.S. Sens. Mark Udall, D-Colo., and Michael Bennett, D-Colo., to support House Resolution 175 condemning the state-sponsored persecution of Baha’is and to create an equivalent Senate resolution.
