The Greater Littleton Interfaith Council exists to help the constituent churches carry out their united activities, and support each other’s efforts, to advance the spiritual, moral, and social welfare of the community.
The Greater Littleton Interfaith Council in made up of the following member organizations: First Baptist Church of Littleton; Congregational Church of Littleton, United Church of Christ, St. Anne-St. Catherine Catholic Collaborative, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and First Church Unitarian, Littleton. It is open to all faith-based organizations in the Town of Littleton, Massachusetts, as well as communities in the greater area.
Representation consists of the clergy/leadership and other delegates from each participating organization. Each organization determines how delegates are chosen and the length of time they will serve. There are typically monthly meetings in the Fall, Winter, and Spring each year, with a break in the Summer.
The Council maintains funds to help people who do not belong to a local faith-based organization and a small fund for travelers. Each year the Council sponsors an Interfaith Service and a community service event in the Spring, along with other events from time to time.
The Interfaith Service is held on the Sunday before Thanksgiving. The clergy and laity of all member organizations participate, including wonderful music from several choirs.
Outreach at Thanksgiving includes a local food drive specifically for Loaves and Fishes to stock food for the holiday to help local families in need.
Each year there is a Christmas Concert held the first Saturday in December and hosted by the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. While not an official event of the Greater Littleton Interfaith Council, this is an event supported by many of the member organizations of the Council.
Over the years, the Greater Littleton Interfaith Council has taken on town wide projects. Now separate groups, the Neighborhood Supper and Habitat 2000 are two town organizations that got their start with the Greater Littleton Interfaith Council.
