Aurora’s faithful turned out for a Thanksgiving service that brought together the prayers and music of the city’s many churches, temples and religious community centers.
The service last weekend brought together members of Hindu, Jewish, Catholic, Protestant, Islamic and Baha’i communities from around Aurora to worship and give thanks and build relationships.
This was the fifth year for the service, and this year, the Interfaith committee is hoping to keep the gratitude flowing throughout the year with an online group. Those who attended the service, or anyone interested in further interfaith activities, can post their thoughts, and keep informed by ‘liking’ Inter F.A.I.T.H.
