NCCJ was founded in 1927 in response to a wave of religious intolerance sweeping the nation.
One of NCCJ’s most famous early efforts was the Tolerance Trio. The Trio was a group of three faith leaders – a minister, a rabbi, and a priest. Beginning in 1933, they visited hundreds of audiences across the country, asking Americans to embrace interfaith understanding.
Today, fostering interfaith respect and collaboration continues to be an important aspect of NCCJ’s work in the Triad community.
Our Interfaith Tours promote understanding and respect among all cultures, races and religions. For more than 20 years, this annual event has been bringing together people of all ages and faiths for a unique opportunity to meet neighbors who practice different faith traditions and hear from diverse faith leaders. Participants develop a stronger knowledge of and appreciation of different practices and beliefs.
Our upcoming 2021 Interfaith Tour will be virtual, of course. Stay tuned for more details – we hope you can “join” us.

Recognizing and respecting the faith traditions of others helps your friends, colleagues and neighbors feel more comfortable being their whole selves.
It can be difficult enough to stay on top of your own calendar, let alone keep track of other people’s plans. That’s why we create these Interfaith Calendars each year. We hope you’ll find these a useful resource when you’re planning events or scheduling meetings. Selecting an inclusive date helps ensure that your event is welcoming for everyone.
Note: We work to make these calendars as accurate and inclusive as possible. If you spot an error or oversight, please let us know so that we can correct it!
