Plans for inter-faith activities during the Canadian Inter-Faith Conference during Canada’s Centennial Year, which starts or January 1, 1967, were announced here by Lavy Becker, Canadian Jewish leader who is chairman of the board of directors of the Inter-Faith Conference, to which 28 faiths now belong.

The Centennial Commission recently announced a $60, 000 grant to help the Conference plan inter-denominational projects for the next two years. The Conference intends, among other projects, to commission the writing of new prayers with “universal qualities that all support.” It will also choose, within a few weeks, a poet and a composer to write a hymn for 1967.
