September 18, 2020  -  STATEMENT FROM DCIC:

The Board of the Dutchess County Interfaith Council stands heart to heart and shoulder to shoulder with religious and non-religious organizations in denouncing state-sponsored violence.  We support peaceful protests calling for a deep examination of the unaddressed causes of racism that sicken society as well as souls.  The work ahead continues to be profoundly challenging, but our faith- traditions demand that we look upon each other with eyes of compassion. 

We call all people to respectfully and continually reflect within the heart, acknowledging it is by action, or inaction, character is revealed.  May the oppressed continue to be heard, supported and uplifted.  Let this be a spiritual shift of conscience for those who have ignored the pain of racism in America to awaken and empathize, to see the injustice suffered by too many of our brothers and sisters, and may we work, together, to realize justice for all.

Those who have died from Covid 19 . . .

were mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, friends and beloved members
of their community. In memory of those in our communities
who have passed away from the virus, Dutchess County Interfaith Council
has establ
ished an “In Memoriam” page.
