Photos of East Bay Interfaith Community Gathering

We join in solidarity and support together to remember those lives lost to COVID-19 and celebrate our collective rebirth and renewal on Sunday, June 27, 2021. Watch the gathering at

Held in the parking Lot of MCC East Bay, 5724 W. Las Positas Blvd., Pleasanton and sponsored by Eden Area Interfaith Council, Tri-Valley Interfaith InterconnectTri-City Interfaith Council.

We gathered to mourn the victims of the horrific yearlong pandemic on our community. The Coronavirus caused millions of deaths and disrupted billions of lives globally.

Group worship was also disrupted, but the outbreak has bolstered the religious faith of many faithful and opened opportunities to pray and to serve our community with food, medical supplies, and more. 

Disasters and crises have a way of making some question the existence of a greater force for good in the world and others to become more religious in the wake of tragedy.

As we look forward to better days, we reflect on the intersection of faith, a pandemic, a historic social movement.
