Interfaith Thanksgiving Service

The 36th Annual Houston Interfaith Thanksgiving Service, to be held Thursday, Nov, 18, 2021 at 7:00 p.m., will take place at St. Philip Presbyterian Church, 4807 San Felipe, in the Galleria District of Houston.  The theme for this year’s service is “The Gift of Life.”  Representatives from nine religious faiths, including Bahai, Buddhism, Christian, Hinduism, Islam, Jain, Judaism, Sikhism, and Zoroastrian,  will read a passage from their sacred text and then share a brief  interpretation of the text, as it relates to the theme of the service.

The first Interfaith Thanksgiving Service was a response from the Ecumenism Commission of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, when a mosque was firebombed in Houston 39 years ago.  The purpose of this event is for faith communities to come together at a special time of thanks, to see how various faiths express themselves in worship.

For those who plan to attend, Covid protocols for wearing masks and social distancing will be observed. The service will be live-streamed and recorded.  Registration for attending in person and for live-streaming is here http://www.saintphilip.net/Interfaith.html
