On Sunday, November 24, at 7 pm, at Trinity Church, there will be an interfaith program that is intended to bring residents together as a united community. The gathering, according to organizers, will be a way for attendees to feel thankful for the many ways all have shown compassion this past year and dedicated to serving one another in the months and years ahead.
The hope, they say, is that with this commitment to service before them, attendees can raise the bar on how all communicate and problem solve in town, and strengthen the culture of compassion and cooperation that has gained so much momentum this past year.
Children and youth in town who are already active promoters of service in the community will take center stage in the program, showcasing their efforts and describing their vision for the future.
Any young person in town is welcome to add his or her voice as a participant in a special children’s ensemble for the evening made up of youth from every part of Newtown. Children grades 3 and up are invited to arrive at the church at 6 pm, for a rehearsal. Participating children are asked to wear black pants, a white shirt, and no sneakers, if possible.
Adults are welcome as well to join in a townwide chorus. Those wishing to participate are asked to be in the church choir room at 6:15 to prepare. The adult choir will be leading hymns and singing an anthem for Sunday’s program.
For additional information concerning either choral group contact Trinity Director of Music Ministries Fiona Smith Sutherland at 203-426-9070 extension 11 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The program is expected to last approximately one hour. All are welcome for what should be a very uplifting and unifying evening.
Trinity Episcopal Church is at 36 Main Street.
