  • All Nations Grand River Water Walk

    Save the date for this chance to pray with your feet for the water. Kitchener, Ontario resident, Mary Anne Caibaiosai will lead this ceremonial All Nations Grand Water River Walk. Mary Anne is Bear clan Anishnaabe kwe from Wiikwemkoong Unceded Territory, Manitoulin Island. Mary Anne says, “I am being led to follow in the footsteps of Josephine Mandamin, an Anishnaabe Elder, the original water walker who has walked all the Great Lakes; to walk along the waters of the Grand River.

    The All Nations Water Walk will begin at the headwaters of the Grand River and follow the beautiful riverways to Lake Erie. The walk is intended to honour the water and connect all peoples to creation. It is also a walk in memory of the late Violet Caibaiosai, one of the original Water Walkers.

    This journey on both sides of the Grand River, is to honour the Grand River, to pray for her, sing for her, and carry her with a ceremonial pail. In our ancestors’ traditional belief and teachings, water is life; she has spirit and without her we would not be here. Our word for water is “Nibi” and we say “Nga Zichiige Nibi Onji ­ We do it for the water”.

    “We are walking to help the water. We believe when we sing for her, offer her good words and prayers, that she will become clean. It is my vision that men and women of all ages and color will come to walk for her.”

  • 2018 Parliament of the World's Religions

    Thousands of religious and civic leaders assembling to address the critical global issues of peace, justice, and sustainability. 10,000+ people, 200+ Spiritual Traditions, 80+ Nations

    2018 PoWR logo

    While climate actions by our own faith communities are crucial, we can’t lose sight of the fact that climate destabilization can only be halted when we act collectively.  That is why the Parliament of the World's Religions' international convening in Toronto next November 1-7, with an expected attendance of over 10,000, presents such an amazing opportunity for Canadian faith communities to share their stories, to learn from each other, and ultimately, to join together with other faith and spiritual communities from around the world to build a more sustainable world.

    Faith & the Common Good has joined the Parliament’s Climate Action Task Force to ensure that climate change will be a major topic of the Toronto Parliament. We expect as many as 100 diverse programs on climate and related environmental issues, as well as a hospitality room, a resource centre, booths in the exhibit hall, and the 3-hour Climate Assembly from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Sunday, November 4.

    We invite you to participate in this incredible event in any way you can.

    Don’t miss this special gathering where we can find ways to mutually support each other and work together towards shared goals of protecting Mother Earth for the next generation.
