The Interfaith Community of Lower Bucks (ICLB) is a volunteer, nonprofit organization that fosters communication between different religious communities within Lower Bucks County. Its mission is to bring together people of all faiths to build harmony, community and understanding by hosting and participating in community work, play, worship and education.
“I’m proud to be a board member of the ICLB, especially in these times when increased racial tensions and hate crimes have resurfaced in our community,” says group member Lisa Gage. “The ICLB actively participates in building awareness of such events and taking an active role (along with other peace groups in the area) in community building.”The ICLB group meets the third Thursday of each month, from 7 to 8 p.m., at the Zubaida Foundation mosque library, located at 855 Big Oak Road, in Yardley. Area residents can join the organization or attend meetings and special events, including Sharing Our Faith events, the Interfaith Film series, Interfaith Thanksgiving Potluck and Service, and international peace festivals.
