Welcome to the Multifaith Action Society!

2018 Multifaith Calendar...  Now Available!









MAS is pleased and excited to announce the publication of the new 2018 Multifaith Calendar - The Power of Inspiration. 

Featuring 26 pieces of original art from visual artists across North America and Internationally, the 2018 MFC marks the 32nd year of publication and features the theme of The Power of Inspiration.

Inspiration can come from our faith, from reading a book, from listening to music, or discovering a new skill or talent. We all need inspiration to get us through the times that are barren, dark, or heavy with burdens. Like a light piercing through the darkness, inspiration can lift us up and cheer us on when we feel we can’t go on. Inspiration is as needed as the air we breathe!

The 2018 Multifaith Calendar is devoted to The Power of Inspiration. All our artists submitted works based on this rich theme. And the variety of subjects and techniques is no less than inspirational. Enjoy!

Published annually by the Multifaith Action Society (MAS), 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.

Statement on the January 29 Quebec mosque attack

The Multifaith Action Society unequivocally condemns the senseless act of violence and hatred that claimed the lives of six Muslim-Canadians this past Sunday at the Centre culturel islamique de Québec. We want to express our condolences to the families of the deceased and injured, and assure the Muslim community that we stand with you in solidarity at this most difficult time. We embrace all religions, and are steadfast in our belief that dialogue and cooperation between people of different cultures provides the antidote to fear and hatred. Multiculturalism is an essential element of the Canadian national fabric, and we hope that people of all faiths can join together in condemning violence in the name of religion and in reaching out to each other with love and respect.
