The Nauset Interfaith Association was established from a previous clergy support group as a response to the tragic events of September 11, 2001. About 25 congregations on the lower and outer cape send clergy ( active or retired ) or lay representative, or both, to the NIA Steering Committee which meets monthly at member congregations on a rotating basis.
We sponsor several annual interfaith events, namely, a Thanksgiving service, a Martin Luther King breakfast, and a holocaust memorial service. We also support other educational and advocacy events, sometimes in conjunction with other groups.
Nauset Interfaith has founded or supports three ‘action teams’ on the lower and outer cape working on the issues of racism, at risk youth, and immigrants and refugees. They are:
Nauset Interfaith Association is a 501(c)(3) organization
Martin Luther King
Refugee Support Action Team
