Multi-Faith Calendar

Title2019 Multifaith Calendar:  Coming Together – Exploring New Connections

Published annually by the Multifaith Action Society (MAS), the Multifaith Calendar is a unique educational resource that facilitates and promotes understanding of religious observances, occasions and festivals important to a wide spectrum of cultural and faith communities. Featuring 28 pieces of original art from visual artists across North America and Internationally, the 2019 edition marks the 33rd year of publication and features the theme:  Coming Together – Exploring New Connections.

Rather than separate and divide even further, now is the time to take down walls, and come together in new ways. The 2019 edition of the Multifaith Calendar asks what connects us? Is it economies, politics, a sense of place, a unique culture? What brings people together in dialogue, action and creativity? How do we build new bridges across old divides? The 2019 MFC looks for new paradigms on how to actively engage with each other that holds the promise of inclusion and not exclusion and strives to demonstrate visually and with content that there is less that separates us than brings us together. Enjoy!

 

What’s New for 2019:  Over the years, the Multifaith Calendar has been privileged to feature aboriginal seasons and moons according to different First Nations, including Nisga’a (northwestern BC) and Ojibwa (eastern BC to western Quebec and in the upper and mid-west in the US). This year, the 2019 Multifaith Calendar features moons and months as observed by the Cree First Nations.

The Cree occupy a large area of across Canada’s north from Quebec to Alberta as well as parts of Montana in the US, from the northern woodlands areas to the southern plains. While being one people, there is a great variation amongst the different regional groups, which include: Plains Cree, Woodland Cree, Swampy Cree, Moose Cree, Attikamek and East Cree. This edition of the MFC uses Woodland Cree for the purposes of describing Cree moons and months.
