Now Available...  The 2022 Multifaith Calendar

Nearly 500 different holidays and religious festivals from 14 world religions, as well as select cultural events, public holidays and United Nations observances, are detailed in the Calendar. By helping to raise awareness of these observances, as well as their historical origins and any spiritual precepts that maybe associated with them, the Multifaith Calendar continues to assist and facilitate cross-cultural understanding, provide a basis for dialogue, discussion and community involvement / engagement, and foster environments of mutual respect, awareness and understanding across communities and in workplaces as well as both private and public institutions across North America and Internationally.

The theme for the new 2022 Multifaith Calendar is:
Resilience.

Even in the midst of rising seas and turbulent waters, somehow life goes on. Nature endures, people band together. And more than that, they thrive.

Challenges bring suffering, it is true, but they also bring new opportunities. They give us a fresh start. A second chance to improve ourselves and our societies. They teach us courage and humility.

During such times, we often have no choice but to stare down our personal and communal imperfections. To see ourselves and others as we really are. The process is painful, but it is also a necessary truth-telling. For it allows us to deepen into empathy and acceptance. And through it, we are purified together, like coal into diamonds.

In this 2022 Multifaith Calendar, we celebrate Resilience and the hope that keeps us afloat, even during the most difficult times.

Far from being just an informational resource, the Multifaith Calendar also provides a platform for emerging visual artists to have their work exhibited in print. Each year, hundreds of artists from around the globe respond to a Call for Submissions from mid-October to the end of January each year (the overarching artistic theme of the Calendar changes annually), and our Multifaith Calendar production team ultimately identifies approximately 25 original works of art for publication. Artists whose work is included are awarded honorariums and given full credit, and in this way the Calendar helps to increase the public exposure, marketability and livelihoods of artists as well.

The theme for the new 2021 Multifaith Calendar is:
Living Legacies.

What do we want to leave our children? Do we want to leave polluted air, ravaged forests, dying oceans and polluted garbage dumps? Or do we want to clean up our act and create natural beauty and wonder in every landscape. Do we want to leave a world in conflict or a world that values peace, cooperation, and respect? How do we both create and maintain living legacies for our children, friends, neighbours to inherit?

Our planet is our most precious resource. It sustains us, supports us, and is our home. We need to love our home planet and honour one another so we can live happy, meaningful, fulfilled lives. Let’s think about and imagine the living legacies we could leave - so our children can walk freely in nature, grow food in their own back yards, swim in pristine oceans, and foster enduring respect and love for our communities as well as each other.

 

The 2021 Multifaith Calendar offers you the opportunity to visually reflect on what living legacies resonate with you and can be both protected for current generations as well as passed on intact for future ones. Enjoy!
