Upcoming Inter-Faith Network of Calgary meeting at Akram Jomaa Islamic Centre

The next meeting of the Inter-Faith Network of Calgary (IFNC) will be hosted by Akram Jomaa Islamic Centre (2612 37th Ave. NE) on Friday, May 10 from 1:15 pm - 3:30 pm. We will experience their prayer service and the have an opportunity for Q and A afterwards.

Our theme for this year is: 'Putting a Face to Faith'.

At each venue we will be attending part of a service with the congregants and then joining them for light refreshments followed by a discussion with a few individuals from that faith, regarding their own practice. A donation of $2 per person at each venue would be appreciated.

IFNC is an informal and grassroots group of Calgarians, belonging to several faith traditions, who have come together to promote goodwill and mutual understanding.

We believe that this objective is best achieved by interaction and dialogue among the followers of different faiths. This belief is based on our conviction that while the general tendency is to highlight the differences among different faiths, a deeper study would reveal that we have more in common than is generally believed.

We hope that through these gatherings, we will encourage mutual respect and peace in our community.

We meet once a month to discuss questions related to our personal spirituality and religious practice.

The venues of the gatherings rotate among the places of worship.

Sharing Our Sacred Spaces Bus Tours - Sunday, September 30th 2012



As part of the Calgary 2012 Cultural Celebrations this year, the Inter-Faith Network of Calgary is hosting 6 bus tours to visit various places of worship in our city, on Sunday afternoon, Sept. 30th, from 1 - 6pm. 

Buses leave from 6 different points around the city,  visit 2 "sacred spaces" each, and then all meet at Cardel Place for a multifaith program featuring the Cantare children's choir under the direction of Catherine Glaser-Climie, a Sikh harvest dance performance, and refreshments. 

Each faith community will share how they celebrate the Harvest season, show gratitude and compassion towards others, and show visitors how their community uses their "sacred space".

Please see the flyer for details of the tours. 


You will find links on the flyer to get to our page on the GIGYYC website, and also to the eventbrite website to choose a tour and purchase a seat. 

There is also a contact number if you have questions.
