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, at noon, at Sherburne Commons.
