Uniting in Thanks – Community Thanksgiving Celebration

The annual Community Thanksgiving Celebration will be held on Tuesday, November 20 at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, 1373 Kilauea Avenue. The theme of this year’s program, which starts at 7:00 PM, is “Uniting in Thanks.” It will feature an evening of music from many faith traditions, including our own chancel choir, Nā Leo Ni`o Lani.

The celebration is sponsored by Interfaith Communities in Action (ICIA), of which Church of the Holy Cross is a founding member. ICIA is a consortium of faith communities in East Hawaii, working together to respond to issues affecting our neighbors. It has taken a leading role in seeking to address family homelessness and joined with other churches, groups, and agencies to assist those displaced by the recent eruption in Puna.

As in past years, donations of non-perishable foods for the Hawaii Food Basket are welcomed. There will also be a calabash for donations to support the feeding programs at the Hale Iki and Sacred Heart tiny shelter sites for lava evacuees.

Come celebrate the spirit of Thanksgiving with an evening of inspirational music and the opportunity to help our East Hawaii neighbors!
