Interfaith Council

A Diverse Council Connected by Goodwill

The Interfaith Council’s mission is to promote harmony, diversity and goodwill among all faiths, as we unite on the common ground of gratitude. The Council, embodied by 26 denominations that cover almost every continent in the world, leads our Goodwill initiative by developing and fostering a broad understanding and appreciation of faith traditions through dialogue, education, visitations and various programs.

The Interfaith Council regularly meets to plan speaker series, visits to local congregations, special prayer vigils, tours, open houses and other community events that bring people together including yoga, poetry and musical performances. Other events include an interfaith thanksgiving celebration, Veterans Day, The National Day of Prayer Luncheon, and Festival of Faiths in both the spring and the fall.

The Interfaith Council serves victims of discrimination, the economically disadvantaged, those grieving from personal loss, children and adolescents, enthusiasts of greenspaces, devotees of art and architecture, as well as our downtown residential neighbors. To help serve our business neighbors, the Council is developing a Best Practices Guide for Diversity in the Workplace.

The Interfaith Council works to transform people by introducing gratitude, virtue and goodwill into their everyday lives, which will transform communities for the better.
