Churches plan service of healing


November 16, 2001|By Peg Adamarczk | Peg Adamarczk,SPECIAL TO THE SUN

REMEMBERING THE events of Sept. 11 and how they altered daily life for so many, the Pasadena Area Ministerium is sponsoring an ecumenical service of healing and thanksgiving Sunday at Community United Methodist Church.

Don Latrickcm, pastoral associate at Our Lady of the Chesapeake Church and ministerium representative, said Sunday's program, "The Patriot Dream: An Ecumenical Service of Healing and Thanksgiving," will include readings, hymns, reflections and prayer.

The program will also offer prayers and recognition for the men and women who provide critical community services to the people of Pasadena.

"These local emergency medical personnel, police and [firefighters] deserve to be acknowledged for a job well done," he said.

Participating in the program are nine churches: Community, Magothy and Mount Carmel United Methodist churches; Emmanuel and Galilee Lutheran churches; Magothy Church of the Deaf; Our Lady of the Chesapeake and St. Jane Frances de Chantal Roman Catholic churches; and St. Andrew's Episcopal Church.

To honor the spirit of sharing for the Thanksgiving holiday, non-perishable food will be collected during the service. Food donations will benefit the North County Emergency Outreach Network.

The community is welcome to attend the service, which begins at 4 p.m. Community United Methodist Church is at 8680 Fort Smallwood Road.

Chorus releases CD

Hot off the press in time for the holidays, St. Jane Frances School's junior high chorus has produced its first compact disc of Christmas carols to raise money for the school's spring production of The Sound of Music.

The St. Jane Singers' compact disc, A Holly Jolly Christmas, features 10 holiday favorites.

It is available for $10. Orders will be accepted through Nov. 30, and the discs may be picked up at the school beginning Dec. 3.

Teacher Charles Alexander directs the St. Jane Singers.
