Welcome to the Connecticut Council for Interreligious Understanding (CCIU).

For over 14 years CCIU has been working to advance the goals of interreligious understanding, respect, and religious pluralism in the Greater Hartford area. As people of faith we believe that learning about each other's religion in an honest, open and respectful atmosphere is vital to the thriving of our society and culture.

To accomplish these goals CCIU has engaged in a variety of educational activities including, issuing public statements on religious issues, dialogue luncheons, and lectures, and seminars that are geared towards providing an honest and educated exploration of its member religious groups.

Our organization is made up of at least two representatives from the following faith groups: Baha-i Faith, Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Jainism, Judaism, Sikhism, and Unitarian Universalism. Our Board meets monthly in the Greater Hartford area. For more information on our organization please visit or contact us. We welcome people of all ages, and religious backgrounds.

Please join us in promoting interreligious understanding through our society and world. View our brochure.
