Monash Interfaith Gathering Inc. (MIG Inc)



The Monash Interfaith Gathering (MIG Inc) was created to contribute to the harmony of the Monash community, by promoting positive relations between people of different faiths, beliefs and cultures, including those with no religious beliefs.

The MIG recognises that the relationships between people of different faiths and cultures must be grounded in respect and  mutual understanding, which support the uniqueness of each tradition and encourage co-operative action.

The Gathering seeks to build bridges between people through greater public awareness of the teachings, customs and practises of the world diverse faith traditions as practised in Victoria.

MIG Inc supports the right of individuals in Victoria to freely practise their faith. MIG is open to all individuals who support the aims and objectives of the Gathering.
