January is Interfaith Harmony Month

The governor of South Carolina has proclaimed January to be Interfaith Harmony Month in conjunction with Interfaith Partners of SC. To spread the good news this year, proclamations will be read on December 30 at 11 a.m. in the Charleston City Council Chambers, 80 Broad Street, hosted by The Charleston Interreligious Council.

Children from 10 different traditions including Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity, Greek Orthodox, Islam, Judaism and more will each read a line. Music will be provided by Heather Rice. Mayor Tecklenberg will emcee and perhaps sing a song.

Interfaith events in 2020, include Sacred Spaces Tour at Second Presbyterian and St. Matthew Lutheran Churches on January 12; Interfaith Panel at The Villages in Summerville on January 19; Food and Faith on January 17; and Holy City History, commemorating and kicking off Charleston’s 350th anniversary, on January 23. More events will be announced.
