The 2021 Multifaith calendar is now available. The Multifaith Calendar is a unique educational resource that facilitates understanding of religious observances, occasions and festivals important to a wide spectrum of cultural and faith communities. We are excited about the rich diversity of images throughout the Calendar, published in a full size (13″ x 10″) and colour format. The 2021 Multifaith Calendar – Living Legacies, marks the 35th anniversary edition.
The Multifaith Calendar assists in recognizing and respecting the diversity across our faith communities, while at the same time seeking to celebrate the values we hold in common. We expect to learn from each other and assume from our experience that the faith we each espouse will be enriched by interaction with those of other beliefs and traditions.
More specifically, the Multifaith Calendar offers insight into the world’s major faiths – a window that gives not only accurate information on each of the major holidays and festivals, including their dates and significance, but detailed historical information of these faiths and their relationship to time. With this information, we can better understand the cultures from which they emerge.
This Calendar provides accurate dates with descriptions for the world’s major religions and the cultural festivals of most ethnic groups in North America.
Included are dates for:
In addition, the MFC identifies examples of 20th Century Religions, including Scientology.
Who doesn’t want world peace and harmony in their lives?
It is an almost universal desire. But today, the world seems to be moving away from this ideal. What do you think peace looks like? Is it different from harmony? We all have moments of peace. We can in fact take a snap shot of the moment where we felt peace, but then it seems the moment moves away from us. Harmony is a little more fluid. It is not just one thing or one moment. Harmony is often created when many notes or many things come together in a new way and create a feeling. The 2020 Multifaith Calendar offers the opportunity to reflect on reimagining these two precious commodities in today’s world.
