The Interfaith Council of Contra Costa County is an autonomous local organization committed to supporting the religions and communities of our county.
We as people from a diversity of religions, spiritual traditions and sectors of society, gather to manifest our unity as we promote the spirit of community, service and cooperation through the work of the Interfaith Council.
The Anglican Diocese of Curitiba is the companion diocese of the Diocese of California, a relationship approved at the October 2007 Diocesan Convention and ratified by The Episcopal Church in February 2008. Located about 5 hours southwest of Sao Paolo, the diocese was founded in 2003 and is led by the Rt. Rev. Naudal Alves Gomes. The Diocese of California entered into the partnership in hopes of connecting individual people within the two dioceses and building personal bridges between our two continents. The partnership will also strengthen our work on the Millennium Development Goals. At a time when ties between members of the Anglican Communion are strained, this partnership offers us hope that reconciliation between Christians is always possible despite our different interpretations of the word of God.
