Ecumenical community Thanksgiving services

In addition to Mass being available in many Catholic parishes on Thanksgiving Day (Thursday, Nov. 22), many local ministerial alliances organize ecumenical Thanksgiving prayer services in the days leading up to the holiday as a chance to pray as one faith community and take up an offering for local people in need. These services are a long-standing tradition in areas of the diocese and offer a rare opportunity to gather and pray united with members of other Christian congregations. Here is a partial list of ecumenical Thanksgiving prayer services that are scheduled in the diocese. All services are at 7 p.m. unless noted.
