About Casey Multi-Faith Network

Since its inception in 2006, the Casey Multi-Faith Network has been working to promote positive relations between people of different faiths.

The Network has also been working on removing misconceptions and breaking down barriers to create peace, harmony and understanding between people of different faiths and the wider community.

The Network supports the right of individuals to practice and promote their personal beliefs but encourages them to come together to focus on what unites them whilst also acknowledging their differences.

The Network is a voice of people of faith in face of fear, ignorance and intolerance, who wish to work together to attain common objectives such as peace, unity, friendship and benevolence. 

 

Our Vision:
