About the Interfaith Council

The Nantucket Interfaith Council (IFC), is a collaboration of Nantucket’s religious congregations. Clergy and lay representatives comprise the Council of approximately 25 persons. The council represents a growing trend in ecumenical and interfaith unity. It supports each religious congregation in promoting spiritual, ethical, and social welfare and addresses pertinent issues and emergencies in the Nantucket community.

The IFC meets monthly, the second Tuesday of each month, noon, at the Christian Science Church, 2 Madaket Road.

The Nantucket Interfaith Council operates two secular outreach programs to assist island families and individuals  with food and shelter:  The Nantucket Food Pantry and the Nantucket Rental Assistance Program. We also provide Fuel Assistance processing under the Low Income home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP).   These services are offered to qualifying individuals regardless of race, sex, sexual orientation, or religious beliefs.
