Faith House Ottawa was founded in 2010 by Elyse, Jesse, Kaitlyn, Sean, a group of rad young adults who worked together with the Tony Blair Faith Foundation on social justice and community building projects. They got together and decided: instead of just working together, why not live together and take this interfaithing* thing to a whole new level?
Faith House is a multi-faith** community of young adults committed to justice and social action from an interfaith perspective. We are thankful to have a number of awesome supporters, such as the community at All Saints Anglican Church in Sandy Hill.
Join us for meals, discussions, movie nights, service projects, non-violent direct actions and other events that live out community in diversity.

*It is a goal of some of us to make “interfaith/interfaithing” a legit verb in the English language. Pretty sure it’ll happen. (Aussi, nous essayons de bilinguiser notre maison. Some of us are better at this than others.)
**To us, multi or inter-faith includes all faiths, spiritualities, philosophies, traditions. (Right now we have 2 Muslims, 2 United Church peeps, 1 Buddhist/Mennonite, 1 Athiest, and 1 Agnostic/it’s complicated.)
