This special Canada Day offering of Sacred Ceremonies and Prayers, led by Elders from the city’s major faith traditions, marks the 5th time the Canada Day Celebration has been hosted and the 3rd time the celebration is being sponsored by TAIC and the Multi Faith Centre.
On this 5th Anniversary, University of Toronto’s Multi Faith Centre will serve as a church, a temple, a mosque, a synagogue, an ancestral place of worship and a place of meditative silence.
The congregation - people of different faith traditions - will participate in sacred rites: agape (sharing of bread), homa (fire) ceremonies, Azan (Muslim call to prayer), smudging, dervish whirling, interspersed with deep moments of stillness and contemplative walk.
Everyone is cordially invited to this special celebration of Canada Day. An RSVP by June 30th would be appreciated for planning purposes.
In the interest of fellowship and congeniality, please bring something small by way of a refreshment to be shared with fellow celebrants.
