Parishioners and religious leaders from several faiths will gather at the Christ Episcopal Church in Sag Harbor on Sunday, November 22 from 3 to 5 p.m., for an Interfaith Thanksgiving Worship Service.
Roman Catholic WomanPriest Eda Lorello with the Catholic Inclusive Community, Rabbi Daniel Geffen from Temple Adas Israel, Dr. Yousuf U. Syed of the Islamic Association of Long Island, Reverend Andrew Blake pastor emeritus from St. Andrew Roman Catholic Church, Pastor Michael Jackson of the Triune Baptist Church, and Kimberly Johnson, the minister at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the South Fork, will join Christ Episcopal Church Reverend Karen Ann Campbell, as well as other members of the South Fork religious community, for a sermon by Ms. Johnson at 3 p.m.
The service will be followed by a potluck dinner in the hospitality room.
“We will also have a combined choir, and anyone who wants to sing is welcome,” said Rev. Campbell, who added the church is organizing a special rehearsal Saturday, and those who are interested should call the church office at (631) 725-0128.
“Last year, 100 people attended,” said. Rev. Campbell. “It is a lovely event for the community. Everyone is welcome and we will have prayers from different faith traditions.”
Given the tragic terrorist attacks in Paris last weekend, Rev. Campbell said the service would be a welcome opportunity for those of different faiths to come together as a community.
