Stories of Celebrations

In Mozambique, the bicentenary of the birth of Bahá’u’lláh was an occasion of joy and celebration. Many villages, towns, and cities prepared for the historic event, making banners and brochures, writing songs, creating artistic presentations and decorations, among many other activities.

In some parts of the country, Bahá’í communities extended invitations to dignitaries and religious leaders. Among those gathered at a celebration in Maputo were the Minister of Justice and Religious Affairs, a representative of the Governor, and members of the Municipal Council.
