The Greek word diakonia expresses the act of being called to serve. The Diakonia Project presents a series of eight initiatives across the country in which Canadians of faith are serving their community.
These Canadians do not undertake this work for the good of their own faith group, but for the good of all. The project highlights a core aspect of religious freedom: the freedom to live out one’s deepest held beliefs through concrete actions that serve the common good.
For each initiative, there is a case study written by Cardus, and a profile written by a member of that initiative.
