Festival of Lights

You are invited to our wonderful 19th annual Festival of Lights Service, on Sunday, December 4, 2016 at 1:30 pm. This joyful spiritual celebration of the light within and without brings together people from many spiritual and religious traditions, with soulful offerings from a representative of each faith. It is the highlight of the year!

The venue is Luc Sculpture, 663 Greenwood Avenue, just north of Danforth Avenue, on the east side of the street (Toronto). It is near the Greenwood subway station and there is lots of free parking on Danforth on Sundays. 

Many religions use light--inner and outer--to symbolize their prayers and hopes for what is right with the world, especially at this holiday season. Representatives from the Baha'i, Buddhist, Christian, Divine Feminine, Indigenous, Hindu, Jewish, Muslim, Sikh, Sufi and Zoroastrian traditions will share with us their faith, their passion and their creativity in sacred words, poetry, chants, songs and music.

There will be plenty of light to go around. We light a candle for each of the religions represented, as well as one candle to symbolize our unity, mutual support, and hopes and prayers for world peace.

Please join us for this inspiring and festive interspiritual celebration!


Go to the Greenwood subway station, walk south to Danforth, then west one block to Greenwood.  Luc Sculpture is on the northeast corner.

On Sundays there is free parking on Danforth.

A donation of $10 is suggested; no-one will be turned away for lack of funds.
