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 24 pieces of original art from visual artists across North America and Internationally, the 2019 edition marks the 37th year of publication and features the theme:  Building Our Future Together.

The last few years have been challenging, yet we have persevered. We have conserved our energies, as needed, and have tapped into more inner strength than likely any of us knew we had. Our struggles have not been easy, but we have deepened our resolve and grown immeasurably in spite of—indeed, because of—them.

Yet now it is time for us to open our hearts and work towards building our future together. To meet the neighbours we have never visited before and to join forces with friends, newcomers, and new acquaintances. Our collective needs are vast, but working in concert, we can surely meet them. And when trouble arises and we begin to lose hope, we can care for ourselves and trust that others will soon pick up the slack. For there is no need for fear or overwhelm when you know you are just one part of a loving, cohesive community.

In this 2023 Multifaith Calendar, we celebrate the beautiful and necessary work of BUILDING OUR FUTURE TOGETHER. Read through and see how our artists offer their visions of hope, teamwork, community, and mutual support. We hope these will inspire you and bring you courage in the year ahead. Enjoy and share with your friends and co-workers!

What’s New for 2023:  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), and Cree (across western and central Canada and Quebec as well as in Montana). This year, the 2023 Multifaith Calendar features moons and months as observed by the Coast Salish First Nations.

The Coast Salish is a group of ethnically and linguistically related indigenous peoples of the Pacific Northwest Coast, living in British Columbia, Canada and the US states of Washington and Oregon. They are part of the Indigenous Peoples of the Pacific Northwest Coast and speak one of the Salishan languages.
