Celebrating its 32nd edition, the 2018 Multifaith Calendar’s theme is ‘The Power of Inspiration.’


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.

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!

Our 2018 Multifaith Calendar is dedicated to exploring this theme.

Darren Julian: ‘The Spirit of the Wolf’

Acrylic on canvas, 16″ x 20″; http://bit.ly/2pM1Vda

“I admire the wolf for being a strong hunter (here overlapping the reddish orange moon, which represents the hunter’s moon). I am inspired by the wolf’s hunting spirit, an unbreakable spirit that will not stop because it is not only hunting for itself, it is hunting for its family (the pack of wolves).”

Celebrating Our Faiths – on Tuesday April 11th the Sikh community will be launching a new display at noon in city hall for Vaisakhi, one of the most important dates in the Sikh calendar. It is the their New Year festival and also commemorates 1699, the year Sikhism was born as a collective faith. Vaisakhi is a long established harvest festival in the Punjab and was celebrated long before it gained an added dimension for Sikhs. In 1699 the tenth guru, Guru Gobind Singh, chose Vaisakhi as the occasion to transform the Sikhs into a family of soldier saints, known as the Khalsa Panth. Guru Gobind Singh founded the Khalsa in front of thousands at Anandpur Sahib.”
All welcome, refreshments will be served.
