Join Euclid's Faith Community Leaders in a Thanksgiving Week Ecumenical Service
In a quest for Euclid’s faith leaders to promote dialogue and encounter those of different denominations and people of different faiths, they are planning a second ‘Ecumenical Service,’ on Tuesday, November 22, 2016, 6:30 pm, at Ss. Robert & William Parish (367 East 260th Street, Euclid). In addition, this will be an opportunity to come together and give thanks for all of the many blessings we receive and the privilege of living in the United States of America.
Pastor Michelle Moore of Cathedral Worship and her congregation were host to the first service which took place in September. “Let us express our sincere appreciation to The Lord for each of you who shared in our city’s first Ecumenical Service. A spiritual awakening for all in attendance has begun in our city and we dare not stop now. The service was enriching, inspiring and certainly filled with The Glory of God,” states Moore.
According to Father John D. Betters, Pastor of SRW, he realizes he has big shoes to fill in hosting the next service. “The first Ecumenical Service was an incredible experience and it was an honor to be a part of it. I was blown away and had one of those moments that allows you a glimpse of what heaven will be like. It was just awesome! At the November service we will be celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday, the many blessings we have received, and the gift of a multicultural community.”
Many faith leaders will be in attendance, as well as the newly formed ‘Unity Choir,’ and the children’s choir. The entire community is invited, and a social will follow. A free-will offering of non-perishable food and financial donations will be taken and donated to the Euclid Hunger Center.
“We encourage the community to join us as we put into practice our Lord's teachings of love, understanding, and peace,” states Betters.
