Annual Interfaith Thanksgiving Service
(880 reads)
Monday, November 20 The 56th Annual Tri-City? Interfaith Thanksgiving Service will be held on Monday, November 20, 7:30 p.m., at St Joseph's Catholic Church, 43148 Mission Blvd, Fremont. The program is sponsored by the Tri-City? Interfaith Council.

This year's theme, “We Are One: Building Community,” focuses on how celebrating diversity can help us build unity. The liturgical fabric of the service is rich in readings from sacred prayers, chants, songs, as well as beautiful traditional costumes, dancers, and musicians. The importance of passing the sacred tradition to the next generation is highlighted at the conclusion of the service when younger members of many of the Tri-Cities’? faith communities receive a symbol of their tradition from an older member. Those who attend are invited to bring refreshments for a time of fellowship following the service. A financial offering will also be received for Habitat for Humanity. Parents are encouraged to bring children and youth for this inspiring and educational program. The Thanksgiving service provides a unique opportunity to become acquainted with the varied cultural and religious traditions that are such an important part of our community. A simple reception follows the service where people can greet one another. You are welcome to bring food to share. More info: 510-797-0895 or www.tcicouncil.org

During the school year, the children of St. Joseph School keep the pantry stocked. Of particular need are protein foods such as peanut butter, canned tuna, and canned meats.

Help Catholic Charities of Santa Rosa with wildfire relief
This website will help you access more information and links to various services for fire victims. The Santa Rosa region will never be the same. Your gift works immediately to provide emergency assistance to extremely vulnerable fire victims in Sonoma, Napa, and Lake counties. Unlike the more fortunate among us, these neighbors have no backup plan. Some are working families are unable to buy fire insurance, others are seniors on fixed incomes who can’t afford a rent increase, immigrants who do not qualify for federal disaster aid, and veterans who have searched in vain for a place to call home. These are the people served by Santa Rosa Catholic Charities. Donations to provide long-term solutions for shelter, housing, benefits assistance, and community resource programs to help rebuild lives are seriously needed. www.srcharities.org - Catholic Charities of Santa Rosa also works for: Shelter & Housing, food for those in need, Supportive Services, Immigration Services, and Senior Services. Your donation for fire relief is a very necessary and helpful way to support others. Thank you.
