Bayonne Interfaith Thanksgiving Service Set for Monday, November 25

Bayonne’s thirty-first annual Interfaith Thanksgiving service has been scheduled for Monday, November 25, at 7:00 p.m., at Trinity Parish in Bergen Point, an Episcopal congregation.  The church is located at 141 Broadway at 5th Street. The event is sponsored by Bayonne’s Interfaith Clergy Association, and will include clergy from various religious denominations.  Pastor Victor Llerena of Journey Community Church will offer the homily. 

Father John Fencik, Pastor of St. Mary’s Orthodox Church and Chairman of the Bayonne Interfaith Clergy, said, “The annual Interfaith Thanksgiving service brings together people of all faiths and those without a religious affiliation.  The event provides an opportunity to thank God and to celebrate our community’s religious and cultural diversity.  We ask members of the public attending the service to bring canned food items to help Bayonne’s people in need.” 

The service will include musical selections by St. Peter’s Prep Vox.  Other songs will be sung by the congregation. Musical accompaniment will be provided by Dr. James G. Sanderson, who serves as organist and music director at Trinity Parish.    

A light reception will follow the service.
