The Larchmont-Mamaroneck Interfaith clergy announce the Annual Community Thanksgiving Service “STANDING TOGETHER IN FAITH”.
This year’s service, will be held on Sunday, November 19th at 7 pm at St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Mamaroneck.
The Rev. Carol Gadsden, Rector of St. Thomas, characterizes this year’s gathering as one voice united in the concerns of our local community, state, and country. “Rather than a generic service in which we acknowledge the season, this year the clergy are more specific about the issues that bring and hold us together as God’s people, and raise our voices in a loving response and in thanksgiving for them. As a voice of moral authority with a responsibility to those we serve, we are working towards greater inclusivity, embracing our community’s concerns, more intentional in our prayers and thanks.”
This year’s service will be of a call and response format, with each reading or prayer followed by a corresponding hymn or song. Participating congregations have been encouraged to bring their choirs, filling the sanctuary with a variety of hymns and musical selections. In addition to readings and prayers, each person will have the opportunity to submit and offer up his / her wish or prayer for the season.
This service is open to all. Please bring a can of food with you as an offering. The food will be distributed among the food banks in the two communities.
