The Interfaith Center of Greater Philadelphia
The Interfaith Center of Greater Philadelphia advances mutual trust, understanding, and cooperation among faith communities, in order to work together for the common good of the region.
The Interfaith Center of Greater Philadelphia was founded in 2004 to advance trust and understanding in a region blessed with richness of cultureal and religious diversity. Creating communities of hope and reconciliation in workplaces, schools, and neighborhoods is at the core of the Center's vision. From grassroots to leadership, the Interfaith Center contributes to the area's strength and vitality through multi-faith collaboration, education, dialogue, and service.
To achieve this vision, we:
Develop more leaders of the interfaith movement who know how to bridge differences and work for the common good.
Create accessible models for people of various faith traditions to learn how to work together—not separately—to effectively address common issues and problems in the pursuit of a just and compassionate social order.
Educate and inspire youth and adults of different faiths to create communities that go beyond indifference and skepticism to truly valuing and engaging differences.
Help diverse faith communities understand their respective stories, celebrating both commonalities and distinctiveness within their various traditions.
