Our Unique NicheWe are a network of faith communities who share the religious value of compassionate love for our neighbor in need. We build bridges of understanding, bear public witness to a vision of peace, and are a catalyst of change.
Our Ongoing Initiatives
Holy Grill (since 1987)
We feed the hungry a hot lunch Monday – Friday at Holy Grill in Zion City (North Baton Rouge), provide emotional support and promote healthy lifestyles. Holy Grill is an anchor in the Zion City neighborhood. Volunteers from over 20 faith communities help to serve the food.
Waging Peace (since 2013)
We wage peace through dialogue, education, and shared experiences. Our Waging Peace curriculum is rooted in the original choral work commissioned for our 25th anniversary. BR Healing through Listening encourages listening to those near, your neighbor, and to someone different from you.
Congregation Connections (since 1995)
We connect and encourage congregations from diverse backgrounds to seek common ground and build partnerships. Current emphasis is on the pairing of white and black congregations. Some partnerships have been together for over twenty years; others are just getting acquainted.
