about us

The Compassion Consortium is a non-sectarian and interfaith religious center. We offer spiritual guidance, support, and fellowship to vegans, vegetarians, animal rights activists, animal lovers, and all humans who care about and advocate for animals and the planet. We recognize that many people do not see their deeply rooted compassion for all creatures reflected in houses of worship; some have even left faith traditions after seeing these innocent, loving beings excluded from the level of mercy they deserve; in many cases, they're even denied the possession of a soul.


The Compassion Consortium is here to supplement this "missing piece" for persons who are part of another religious or spiritual community, and those who are not. We welcome participants of all faiths or none. Our regular monthly service takes place on Sunday afternoons, 4 pm U.S. Eastern Time, to avoid interference with most church, synagogue, temple, or mosque services. While we encourage Compassion Consortium membership for those so moved, this is not a "join up required" kind of organization: we're here to serve you, the companion animals you care about, as well as all exploited, abused, and endangered animals, and the fragile ecosystem of planet Earth.

Birth of a Go(o)d Idea.png

by Rev. Carol Saunders

You never know when a good idea is going to germinate. The Universe is at the ready to co-create with us whenever we set our minds and hearts to a good one. Such was the case on a windy, Sunday afternoon on November 11, 2018.

The Birth of a Go(od) Idea

"May all beings everywhere be happy and free. May the thoughts, words and actions of our day contribute to that happiness and freedom for all."
