Religious Diversity Journeys Program Expands Reach
Religious Diversity Journeys has expanded into Macomb and Wayne counties, adding several new schools to this popular immersive interfaith education program. Read about its impact in The Macomb Daily.
The Interfaith Leadership Council of Metropolitan Detroit is a civic organization of lay and clerical people whose shared highest and best values compel us to work towards a thriving community.
We so miss gathering in person at our informal adult education opportunities. But IFLC continues to be here for you as an educational and community outreach resource. Please refer to the information in the top banner above for details on upcoming online and virtual programs.
The InterFaith Leadership Council offers frequent educational programs and special events, usually at area houses of worship. But we will continue to have programs on a virtual basis, usually over Zoom. The public is invited and most activities are free. Browse our Calendar of Events to find an event that interests you.
The InterFaith Leadership Council welcomes participation in our educational programs and special interfaith celebrations, as well as on some of our committees. Our enewsletter will keep you informed and sign-up is free.

More than 800 7th graders from 50 tri-county area schools are participating in the 2019-20 Religious Diversity Journeys. Students visit houses of worship where they learn about five of metro Detroit’s religions, share some of their traditions, and make new friends.
