The Norwich Area Clergy Association announces that its annual Thanksgiving free dinner and program will be held on Thursday, November 21, at 6:00 to 8:00 pm, at Christ Episcopal Church, 78 Washington Street, Norwich. Representatives from various local faith institutions are participating and once again is being catered by St. Vincent de Paul Place.
In addition to sharing thoughts and prayers of thankfulness and respect for one another, we also get the chance to meet our neighbors and sharing our everyday lives.
It is also a fund raising opportunity for the Norwich Area Clergy Association Fuel Oil Fund to help provide winter heat for those in need in our community. As you are probably aware this is the fund administered by the Clergy Association and awards funds to those in need who have exhausted every other source of funds to help them obtain enough fuel and energy to help them through the winter.
If you cannot make the dinner, we hope that you will nevertheless be able to make a contribution to the Fund.
We hope that Beth Jacob will once again pour out in numbers to help support this important level of assistance and to meet our neighbors.
