To forgo the luxury of separate ways when a common path can be found

Welcome to the Metropolitan Area Religious Coalition of Cincinnati which began its work as an interfaith coalition in 1968.  MARCC provides a way for the religious community to speak in one voice to make compassion and reconciliation felt through constructive community action and the development of a community conscience.  The membership consists of fifteen judicatories (denominations), made up of Protestants, Roman Catholics, Muslims, Jews and Unitarian-Universalists. 

MARCC over its 49 year history has worked to address social concerns in the Cincinnati Metropolitan area.  By concentrating on common human needs such as food, human services, quality education, immigration, affordable housing, healthcare, employment, and community/police relations, MARCC has been a pillar within the community and an example of an entity whose members can work together and transcend religious differences while striving for a stronger and healthier community.

2018 Judicatory Concerns Chosen!
At our 2017 Annual Fall Planning Conference, MARCC Delegates chose the following for their two priority social Concerns:

  • Community-Police Relations & Justice Reform
