Join us as we come together in peace and community to reflect on gratitude and care for creation. This gathering promises to be a wonderful evening of exploration, reflection, and fellowship!
Tuesday, November 26, 7:00 p.m.
St. Patrick Catholic Church
1123 North “J” Street, Tacoma 98403
For more than thirty years, Associated Ministries has organized this annual gathering that brings together people of many faith traditions. Historically, the service has included choirs and participants from the Bahá’í, Buddhist, Roman Catholic, Center for Spiritual Living, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Jewish, Muslim, Protestant, Sufi, Native American and Unitarian Universalist faith traditions.
One of the unique aspects of this gathering is that each year it is hosted by a different faith community. Many attendees love this aspect as it allows you to enter into a sacred space that otherwise you might never get to experience. Being in a shared sacred space with many different faith traditions – it is a beautiful experience!
Like to sing? Now in its sixth year, we will again be forming a drop-in interfaith choir. This choir is open to all participants who would like to gather the evening of the event, quickly practice to learn the song, and then sing at the Interfaith Celebration of Gratitude gathering with friends, new and old! Plan to arrive at 6:00 for a run-through of the song as an interfaith choir. No need to sign up or RSVP. Just show up the night of the event at 6:00 for a quick practice ahead of the service! This year’s interfaith choir song will be “We Are Not Alone” by Pepper Choplin. Take a listen to this song on YouTube .
Donations of warm gloves, socks, and hats (new or gently used) for those experiencing homelessness in our community will be collected.
A reception and fellowship time will follow the service. For more information please call (253) 426-1506 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
