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

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.”
