Interfaith Center at the Presidio

Unleashing the Power of

Interreligious Cooperation

Dear Friends of the ICP at the Presidio Main Post Chapel,

We are the Interfaith Center at the Presidio. We believe, and people tell us, we do very good things for our community. Our focus is on veterans and the interfaith councils and organizations. Also, we have monthly concerts at the Main Post Chapel at the Presidio, which is our headquarters. We need help to keep doing these things. Can you help, please?

We are so pleased to announce that the exhibit of the McDonald stained-glass Windows will be on display at the Veterans Building in the Civic Center beginning with the opening on Saturday, August 27, from 4-6 pm through November 20, 2022. These windows were created from glass shards, collected by Rev. Fred McDonald when he was General Omar Bradley’s Chaplain for the troops during World War II. Rev. McDonald donated the windows to us for permanent housing in a Gallery to be built at the Chapel. The glass art has recently returned from exhibit at the National World War II Museum in New Orleans.

In addition to collaborating with all the interfaith councils in the Bay Area cities, the ICP works with these groups to help in fires, floods, and other emergencies that the communities face. For example, now several of our members are helping host Ukrainian refugees. We also help mitigate misunderstandings between religions and hold dialogues to help us understand each other better.

Please help continue this important work with your tax-deductible contribution. You may make your gift online at: www.interfaithpresidio.org/donate.html.

Sincerely,

Camilla Smith                                               Gerry Caprio

VP for Advancement                                    Executive Director
