Newtown Interfaith Association will again present an annual Interfaith Service of Thanksgiving this season. All are welcome.

This year the service on Sunday, November 19, will be hosted by Trinity Episcopal Church, at 36 Main Street.

The event will begin at 5 pm, and will include readings and remarks by leaders of many of Newtown's houses of worship. There will also be live music.

Attendees are being asked to bring with them a donation for FAITH Food Pantry.

In recent years the Thanksgiving service has begun at 7 pm. The Reverend Dr Jenny Montgomery, who is currently serving as priest-in-charge at Trinity, is hoping the early start will result in additional attendees.

"I am hoping that more families will be able to attend this way," she told The Newtown Bee recently.

Additional information is available by calling Trinity Church, 203-426-9070.
