The Calgary Interfaith Council recognizes that prayer and spiritual practices form the core of religious observance. The CIC also celebrates the many wonderful expressions of prayer characterized by the diversity of languages, ritual, body movement, religious paraphernalia, and foods. At the same time, the CIC members share a common striving to engage in a relationship with the Divine as they seek to discern their purpose in the world.
It is the hope of the CIC to encourage wide-spread appreciation for the power of prayer in religious life and to discover opportunities for interfaith prayer throughout the year. Tours of houses of worship are being planned to enable individuals to observe and experience the beauty of prayer within each religious tradition.
