Thanksgiving day services

leave a comment »

Included are Thanksgiving worship schedules as provided by local houses of worship.

St. Bede the Venerable Church
9 a.m. | A once-a-year liturgy. In an effort to return to the beautiful tradition of having children involved in this Mass, St. Bede’s invite all parish children to participate. The church is looking for costumed pilgrims — any simple costume will do.

All participants will lead the procession into church, and some will be gift bearers, lectors and assist with the offertory collection.  Sign ups will be taken in the Education Center outside the Religious Education office.

Families are also asked to bring a food item or beverage to Mass that will be part of their Thanksgiving table later that evening for a blessing.

For more information, call the church at (818) 949-4300.

St. Bede the Venerable Church is at 215 Foothill Blvd. in La Cañada.

Church of Christ, Scientist, La Cañada
10 a.m. | The community is invited to share Thanksgiving worship in the sanctuary.

The service of prayer and praise includes hymns of joy and thankfulness, a readong of the Presidential Thanksgiving Proclamation, a Bible lesson, which includes scripture and citations from the Christian Science textbook, and an opportunity for those present to stand and express their thanks to God for blessings and healing.

Child care will be available for those too young to participate.

For more information, call the church at (818) 790-3493.

Church of Christ, Scientist, La Cañada, is at 600 Foothill Blvd. in La Cañada.

St. James the Less Catholic Church & Holy Redeemer Catholic Church
