Description

Continuing an annual holiday tradition, the Arcadia Interfaith Action Group is inviting community members of all faiths to take part in a Thanksgiving service where representatives from an array of faiths share the common beliefs that unite them.

The service starts at 7 p.m. on Monday, November 22, at Church of the Good Shepherd, 400 West Duarte Road, Arcadia.

Each attendee is asked to bring one or more cans of food to be distributed to neighbors in need by Foothill Unity Center and Arcadia Welfare and Thrift.

The theme of this year's service is "Giving Thanks for Simple Things."

For more information, call Church of the Good Shepherd, (626) 447-2181.

Founded in 1992, the Arcadia Interfaith Action Group is an organization of both lay people and clergy members from many faith traditions. The group is devoted to building bridges of understanding within the local community through interfaith services, gatherings of faith leaders from many traditions, and support of local service agencies.
