Shores is located on the shores of Lake Huron in Ontario, Canada.
Bahá'í community elected its first Spiritual Assembly
on April 20, 2003 (all communities with more than nine Bahá'ís
elect nine-member local governing bodies on an annual basis. There
is no electioneering. These "Assemblies" govern the
affairs of the community for the duration of their term).
The Bahá'í calendar consists of nineteen (19) months
of nineteen (19) days each. At the beginning of each month Bahá'ís
in local communities gather to pray, consult on community affairs
and socialize. We also commemorate nine (9) holy days during the
year — these holy days are associated with the lives of
the Founders of the Faith and include the Bahá'í
New Year which is celebrated on the 21st of March.
The Bahá'í community of Lambton Shores operates
weekly children's classes which teach students the fundamentals
of all the major religions and focus particularly on developing
virtues that will enable the children to become responsible global
citizens. These classes are open to the general public.
