Tri-City Interfaith Council
Mission Peak UU is affiliated with the Tri-City Interfaith Council. This grass-roots organization brings together people of diverse religious beliefs from Fremont, Newark and Union City.
We are people from various spiritual backgrounds and experiences who envision an inclusive society, in which people of all faiths and traditions respect and appreciate one another. Our vision is to promote respect, understanding, and cooperation for the many spiritual paths and within our community, all of which inspire and teach us to love and support one another more fully.
There are three featured programs in our calendar:
United Nations Harmony Day. On the first Saturday of each February, we invite people from the community to gather around tables with people from different faith traditions to talk with each other and learn from each other.
Yom HaShoah Service (Holocaust Remembrance Day). We mark Yom HaShoah on a Sunday evening on or near that day in the Jewish calendar, typically late April or early May. It is a time for the interfaith community to remember six million Jews and five million others who perished as a result of the actions of Nazi Germany, to remember other genocides, and to remind ourselves that hate in many forms has not ended.
Interfaith Thanksgiving Service. On the Monday before Thanksgiving, we sponsor a service that includes prayers, music, and dance from many of the faith traditions represented in the Tri-Cities.
