The Center for Interfaith Relations celebrates the diversity of faith traditions, expresses gratitude for our unity, and strengthens the role of faith in society through common action. We host the nationally renowned Festival of Faiths and offer year-round programming that fosters compassion in our world.

We are committed to sharing the insights and inspiration rooted in the wisdom of faith traditions, and we strive to cultivate communities that are true to our motto of “Many Faiths, One Heart, Common Action.”
