The members of the Bahá'í community in Coleraine, like their fellows in thousands of places throughout the world, marked Monday as the Day of the Covenant.

"This was a special occasion for us," said local Bahá'í Mrs Flora Luck.

"We were remembering the way our faith safeguarded its unity after the passing of its founder Bahá'u'lláh. His covenant with his followers meant that it could grow and develop without splitting into opposing groups. This has enabled the world-wide Bahá'í community to grow and to develop with unity in diversity as its watchword.
