Annual Interfaith Thanksgiving Service

Since 1966, Protestants, Catholics and Jews along the Bower Hill corridor have been coming together each year to give thanks WITH and FOR each other. The Annual Interfaith Thanksgiving Service turns 57 this year, and people of all faiths—or no faith—are invited. See detail below.

Time & Location

Nov 21, 2023, 7:00 PM

Temple Emanuel, 1250 Bower Hill Rd, Pittsburgh, PA 15243, USA

About The Event

The service will draw  from a Native American spiritual tradition known as the “Haudenosaunee  Thanksgiving Address,” which appears in Robin Wall Kimmerer’s 2013  bestseller Braiding Sweetgrass.   The Haudenosaunee people (“Iroquois Confederacy”) make this document  available to the public and encourage its distribution and use.  Music,  refreshments, and fellowship will round out the night.  

This event is  sponsored by Bower Hill Community Presbyterian Church, First Baptist  Church of Bridgeville, Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, Our Lady of Grace  Catholic Church (St. Michael the Archangel Parish), Temple Emanuel of  South Hills, and South Hills Interfaith Movement “SHIM.”

WHERE: Temple Emanuel, 1250 Bower Hill Road

WHEN: Tuesday, November 21 at 7:00pm

You  are encouraged to bring a nonperishable food item as a gift to our  neighbors in need through South Hills Interfaith Movement.
