On March 15, 2009, SGI-Canada Quebec Region Coordinator Jeff Deeprose and Montreal Area Leader Randy Lake were invited to speak about the practice of Nichiren Buddhism to 30 parishioners at Montreal's Mountainside United Church in Westmount. The event began with a review of the history of chanting in Christianity, followed by an introduction of the SGI, its practice and principles. SGI-Canada members also attending recited sections of the Lotus Sutra and chanted Nam-myoho-renge-kyo. The chanting was followed by a question and answer session.
