Join Us For Proclamation at State House on Dec 28

Interfaith Partners of S.C. announces that Governor Henry McMaster has issued a formal proclamation naming January 2018 “South Carolina Interfaith Harmony Month.” Interfaith Partners will read the proclamation and release a schedule of events at a media event in the State House lobby on Thursday, December 28, 2017, at 10:00 AM.

During South Carolina Interfaith Harmony Month, Interfaith Partners presents a calendar of special religious services and events to which the public is invited. Many of the events are an opportunity for people to learn about and experience communities of faith with which they may be unfamiliar.  Read more here

Mourning the Loss of Our President

Interfaith Partners of S.C. mourns the loss of our 2016-2017 President, Dr. Will Moreau Goins, who also served as Faith Representative for Native American spirituality on our board of directors.

Dr. Goins brought many gifts to his role in IPSC, including his understanding of the American Indian deep connection with the earth. His enthusiasm for creative ways of engaging others resulted in a 2016 children’s interfaith art contest. He was closely involved with the creation of South Carolina’s first printed interfaith calendar, delivered just days ago. (A copy of this beautiful educational calendar will be mailed to every school district in the state.) Many have been inspired by Dr. Goins’ singing, his beautiful beading and other Native crafts, and his knowledge of First Peoples history and struggle to survive following the European migrations.

Dr. Goins’ passion for preserving his Native heritage, spirituality, and social justice will be sorely missed. His mark on Interfaith Partners of S.C. remains a tribute to his life of service.

You are invited to post your memories of Will on our Facebook page.
